I love these old school slates, made with real slate that retains a sense of many many years of school lessons performed across its surface--and I believe this is an especially old one (19th c I think), so all the more so. I especially love the simple wood frame on this one--just what it needs to be, and not quite square, plus one bottom corner of the frame exposes the edge of the slate inside, making its authenticity all the more apparent. The jointed corners are pretty great too.
12 5/8" tall x 8 5/8" wide x 7/16" deep. Nicely aged and worn, with some scratching and staining to the slate, but with plenty of use in it yet and structurally sound.
