About
This is the most beautiful old school slate I believe I have ever seen. And I think it is also the heaviest! With a terrific double frame all the way around, and great corners reinforced with metal strips wrapping around the sides, held in place by clusters of fat nails. Just wonderful. Plus, a name carved into the wood at the top of one side, which looks to read Chas Magill or similar. I think Chas must have be a pretty privileged child to have such a nice slate, and the overall wear to the wood suggests it served him long and well! There is a leather strap knotted through holes at the top of the slate, perfect for hanging it up. One side is blank slate and the other has horizontal lines. The wood is a beautiful warm brown and all the better for the scrapes and scratches--but no splits--all over. The frame has a little wiggle but is structurally very sound. 14 1/2" tall x 10 1/4" wide x 5/8" thick. less
