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:
