Set of Two 'Jasper' Washboards, Western Broom and Woodenware
Set of two gorgeous wood & glass vintage/antique washboards, manufactured by Western Broom and Woodenware Ltd., Vancouver. Marked on the top is "The Jasper" Mountain Brand, as Western Broom stamped many different regions & locations on their washboards (the Chief, the Fraser, the Kootenays, etc). Advertising lettering has become somewhat faint but still legible. These lovely washboards would make an outstanding addition to your Canadiana collection. $75 for both.
Made of solid wood (not plywood) with notched dovetail ends. There is a reinforced wood backing on one of the washboards; the other does not (and never did) have this in place. The thick glass scrub board is a light blue-green colour.
Each measures 24" long and 12" wide.
CONDITION: Wood frame has nice patina and exhibits some common wear due to age. Glass is not cracked or chipped. One of the washboards has some tiny holes in the wood, as well as two small cigarette burns on the top board.
