The primitive light-wood and rustic chrome metal "DUBL HANDI" wash board is in very good to great condition. The front side has vibrant red hosiery and bathing-suit patterns imprinted onto the lighter wood with "DUBL HANDI" in a beautiful all caps slightly distressed black Art Deco font. The information just below the "DUBL HANDI" says, "USE EITHER SIDE ACCORDING TO FABRIC COLUMBUS WASHBOARD CO., COLUMBUS, O". The back side information shows, "IDEAL FOR SILKS, HOSIERY AND LINGERIE OR HANDKERCHIEFS" with "JUST THE RIGHT SIZE TO FIT A BUCKET, PAIL OR LAVATORY" just below and "PACKS EASILY INTO SUIT CASE OR TRAVELING BAG" below that. The same "COLUMBUS WASHBOARD CO., COLUMBUS, OHIO" is on both sides. Also, the rustic-chrome metal rippled section on the back side has a much smoother upper section as opposed to the coarser wavy upper on the front. While this gorgeous light-wood and rustic chrome metal washboard most likely dates back to the early twentieth-century, it might still be used for washing. However, this gorgeous wooden "DUBL HANDI" washboard is offered in this listing as a beautiful wall-hanging decoration. The rustic chrome metal with its surrounding light-wood frame and beautiful Art Deco font give this "DUBL HANDI" washboard a wonderful country farmhouse/industrial Art Deco charm.
Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Also, there are no mounts or wire for wall-hanging installed on this gorgeous washboard. Furthermore, there is no evidence of a wall hanger ever being installed on this washboard.
There is a chip on the front inside corner of the right leg. Other than this, there are no breaks, cracks, chips, or repair places on this gorgeous wooden "DUBL HANDI" washboard. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the washboard - mainly in the form of rub marks and distress due to age and wear. Also, it is important to note that even though the chrome metal has a rustic patina that has developed on its surface, the amount of wear and distress on this gorgeous wash board is not consistent with it being used on a regular basis. Furthermore, the cleanliness of the wood along with the lack of material build-up around the interior corners give evidence of little to no use.
The decorative possibilities for this primitive light-wood and rustic chrome metal "DUBL HANDI" washboard are many. The entryway or living area would be enhanced by the addition of this stunning wood and metal early twentieth-century washboard. Also, the laundry-room or bath area would welcome this washboard for its wonderful country farmhouse/industrial Art Deco charm. This particular washboard is the perfect size to prop up on a collectibles shelf or accent table. The very-magnetic ribbed metal would make a great family communication and/or Post-It note message board. In addition, the growing collection of older advertising would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this very clean and attractive primitive washboard.
The collector will appreciate this primitive light-wood and rustic chrome metal "DUBL HANDI" washboard for its very good to great condition, slightly distressed and aged red and black accents, country farmhouse/industrial Art Deco charm, and gorgeous overall appearance.
The primitive light-wood and rustic chrome metal "DUBL HANDI" washboard weighs 15.2 oz.
The gorgeous wood and metal "DUBL HANDI" washboard measures 18" tall x 8 5/8" wide x 1.5" deep.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
