WOW!
Antique SMALL " HOME AIDE "GLASS TWISTED PATTERN WASHBOARD!
It is quite rare to find one of these in such nice shape-
and with the original graphics still visible!
These were designed to be either portable or for
small delicate washing.
T is only ONE flaw in this great primitive houseware necessity- T is a deep scratch in the glass on the rippled side, about 1/2" from the frame.
The scratch isn't a crack (although it scared me at first, as I have
had this piece for a long time)- it is mostly on the ridges as if
something scratched the glass very hard during use.
==IT DOES NOT GO THROUGH TO THE OTHER SIDE AND UNDER MAGNIFICATION, APPEARS TO BE ONLY SURFACE DAMAGE ON THE WASHING SIDE.==
This washboard has wonderful joined corners (see photo#3) and
the advertising is still very strong.
================
Behind the front black lettered label of "HOME AIDE" is a waterfall and scenery in blue ink!
The base of the waterfall has generated bubbles which are
part of the decorative graphic floating on the front panel.
==================
On the back side it reads:
"IDEAL FOR SILKS, HOSIERY AND LINGERIE
OR HANDKERCHIEFS
JUST THE RIGHT SIZE TO FIT A BUCKET,
PAIL OR LAVATORY
PACKS EASILY INTO SUIT CASE
OR TRAVELING BAG
COLUMBUS WASHBOARD CO., COLUMBUS, OHIO"
====================
This is a very sturdy washboard-
clean and appearing to be in all original condition.
I am fairly certain that this belonged to my husband's grandmother,
who was married in the early part of the 1900s.
WHAT A REALLY COOL PRIMITIVE PIECE FOR A LAUNDRY DECOR OR
YOUR COUNTRY HOME!
I will be listing a larger one as soon as I can get at it- not quite as old,
but in nice shape...please check my store for new treasures!
