Antique National Washboard, Wall Hanging, 801 Brass King, Red w Black, Country Farmhouse, Distressed Wood, Home Decor, Primitive Advertising


The primitive wooden "NATIONAL" 801 wall-hanging washboard is in very good condition. The advertisement on the front side has slightly faded and perfectly-aged red and black accents over a faint reddish wood tone. The information on the front says, "National Washboard Co. No NATIONAL 801" in large letters with "TRADE MARKS REG. U.S. PAT. OFF. MADE IN U.S.A. CHICAGO, SAGINAW, MEMPHIS" just below. The back side information shows, "THE BRASS KING" with "TOP NOTCH SANITARY FRONT DRAIN THE BOARD WILL DO THE WORK" to the right. Instead of the metal washboard being tin-steel, this "NATIONAL" 801 has a gorgeously-aged brass washing board with a stunning turquoise-green patina developing on its surface. Unlike washboards with horizontal ridges, this "BRASS KING" has ridges that run on a slight angle. While this gorgeous wood and brass washboard most likely dates back to the early twentieth-century, it might still be used for washing. However, the distressed wooden "NATIONAL" 801 washboard is offered in this listing as a beautiful wall-hanging decoration. The aging brass with its surrounding rustic and distressed frame along with the slightly faded red and black accents give this gorgeous "NATIONAL" washboard a wonderful country-farmhouse charm.

Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Also, the metal wall-hanging wire is already installed on this gorgeous washboard.

There are some stress cracks on this gorgeous "NATIONAL" 801 washboard - mainly near the bottom of each leg. Other than this, there are no breaks, loose sections, or repair places on this gorgeous wooden "NATIONAL" 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. There is a turquoise-green patina developing in certain areas on the brass washboard. Also, the aging metal fasteners and hardware have a gorgeous rustic. In addition, as can be seen in the photos, the aging wooden legs are slightly bowed. This beautiful "NATIONAL" 801 washboard has been cleaned with mild soap and water. Also, extra time was taken to inspect and remove most - if not all - of the lint around the edges of the interior.

The decorative possibilities for this primitive wooden "NATIONAL" 801 wall-hanging washboard are many. The entryway or living area would be enhanced by the addition of this stunning wood and brass early twentieth-century washboard. Also, the laundry-room or bath area would welcome this washboard for its wonderful country-farmhouse charm. The washboard can also be propped up on a collectibles shelf or accent table. In addition, the growing collection of older advertising would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this primitive "NATIONAL" 801 washboard.

The collector will appreciate this primitive wooden "NATIONAL" 801 wall-hanging washboard for its very good condition, slightly faded and perfectly-aged red and black accents, country-farmhouse charm, developing rustic and turquoise-green patina, and gorgeous overall appearance.

The primitive wooden "NATIONAL" 801 wall-hanging washboard weighs 35.3 oz.

The distressed and aged wood and brass "NATIONAL" 801 wall-hanging washboard measures 24" tall x 12.5" wide x 1.75" deep.

***Free Shipping in the USA

***Shipping will include insurance

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:

If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.

***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.
