ANTIQUE WASH BOARD
Our antique wash boards are beautiful with their rustic, aged patina. Made of solid wood, they feature pretty painted flowers at one end. Each piece has its own unique degree of wear. Back in 19th century when doing laundry by the riverside is a happy social event for women, these wash boards are an important part of every day village life.
