Mr. O'Leary has taken an old fashioned item and turned it into a more pleasing, modern, and functional piece. He has signed the back by hand. We think it could have been made mid-century up to the late 60s. It is handmade of solid oak and measures 24 inches long by 10 3/4 inches wide by sturdy 1 inch thick. Shipping and insurance will be $15.00 in the Continental U.S. Others please inquire.
