This is a 19thC Mid 1800s Primitive Child School Writing Slate Initialed WW Willy. The most sought after child’s writing slates are the ones that the child has personalized. This slate has deeply carved W.W. to one edge and Willy carved onto another side. The slate frame is all mortised and pegged. The interior writing surface is actual slate and a graphite stick would have been used for writing. The wood has wonderful smooth worn patina. It measures 13 inches by 9 inches.
