Child's Slate Chalk Board $275.00

Slate Board
United States
circa 1840
Slate, Oak?
8 x 6 inches

A child's portable chalk board. One of those normally fugitive items from America's past involving children and schooling. This board shows great care in its construction: the wood frame trim has been grooved on the inside edge and the slate has been trimmed down in thickness so the two fit together snugly.

Very good condition. Fastening peg missing in one end of the joinery, some scratches on the slate and stains on the wood trim.  $275.00
