Shown is a washboard manufactured by the National Washboard Company. It is version number 801 and is listed as "The Brass King" on the back, which means that it was the largest of the 3 sizes available at the time (the back also reads "Sanitary Front Drain" and "The Board Will Do The Work"). This was picked up at a yard sale in 2012. The original owner said that this washboard had been in her family for about 80 years. The wear and tear, nails, and crack along the front all support the purported age. These washboards are not of much value nor are they very collectible, but they are a neat piece of history!
