Offered is an EXCEEDINGLY RARE, 19th century, oval, bent-wood oak-framed, child's school slate.

This wonderful, double-sided slate measures 10.25 inches x 14.25 inches and is in fine condition. This type of slate was also made in a smaller size, but either size is very, very seldom found today as the majority of 19th century school slates that were produced were rectangular in shape!

Close-up photos show the interesting wood frame seam as well as the hanging hole. Flecks of paint are evident here and there and are most concentrated in one corner on one side of the slate as shown in photos.

This rare oval slate is truly a must-have for any serious collector of early school memorabilia!

Measuring 7.5 inches high x 7.50 inches wide x 3.50 inches high, this all-original, new-old-stock, cardboard display box for Whittemore’s Oil Paste Shoe Shine Polish of Cambridge, Massachusetts, is complete with all 12 of its original polish tins! It is presumed that all tins still contain polish--they are all closed too tightly to easily open for an inspection! That will be left to the new owner!

Interesting and extremely eye-catching graphics on both box and tins! Displays just wonderfully!

The cardboard box has some expected wear as seen in photos with small rips and abrasions, but it retains its structural integrity- still able to support the weight of twelve metal polish tins! The majority of the tins are in very, very nice condition as well with expected, slight superficial scratches here and there. Three of the twelve tins have a bit more surface wear to their lids than the others and are pictured as a trio for the buyer’s perusal---still very appealing.

A very difficult to find vintage country store display piece!

A fabulous find for the newly graduated school psychologist or special education teacher- a 52 year old version of the very well known intelligence assessment, the Stanford Binet Intelligence Scale, Form L-M, published by the Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston!!

Housed within its original "leatherette" suitcase which measures 15 inches x 10.75 inches x 4.25 inches, this 1960 Revision test kit appears to be nearly complete with all original test contents: test manual, small and large, printed, spiral-bound card materials, and its many assorted and varied manipulatives that are housed in individual divider boxes, some retaining the original covers! One manipulative, a small plastic chair, is broken although its broken pieces remain within the kit, and an extra, partially complete, Form Board is also present. The original plastic case handle remains although it was broken and re-glued at sometime previous to our ownership. At this point, the handle should be deemed as purely decorative and not for actual use. Discovered in Massachusetts, the assessment kit is presented for sale as found and has likely seen considerable use over the years! In perusing through its contents, one takes a fascinating walk through intelligence assessment history!

This 1960 Revision is the 3rd revision of this test which was first published in France in 1905 by the French psychologist, Alfred Binet, whom the French government commissioned with developing a method of identifying "intellectually deficient" children for their placement in special education programs. In 1916, at Stanford University, the psychologist, Lewis Terman, released a revised examination which became known as the "Stanford–Binet test". The development of the Stanford–Binet Intelligence Scales initiated the modern field of intelligence testing and was one of the first examples of an adaptive test. The 2nd revision of the test was published in 1937, and a selection of materials from the 1937 scale were deemed essential enough to be included in the 1960 Revision assessment.

A fabulous, vintage school teaching tool from the 19th Century! A red and gold painted wooden Alphabet or Spelling Board!

Measuring 13.25 inches wide x 9.25 inches high x 1 inch thick, this wonderful piece patented February 16, 1886, is in very fine condition with a warm, rich patina and color as well as all 56 of its original wooden letters! To spell a word, one slides the letters along cut out tracks in the board.

Quite visually appealing!

Condition: three of the 1/8th inch thick, round, wooden letters suffered partial breakage at one point in time, but these letters continue to remain quite structurally sound and "readable". Some tiny edge chips to the wood- quite reasonable given its age.

A seldom found vintage, early School House item!

A detailed and historical, 19th century, school "Certificate of Distinction" from the "Albemarle Female Institute of Charlottesville, Virginia!

Text indicates that the certificate was awarded to Emma Shannon on June 12, 1885 (Or 1883--difficult to read as the date is partially concealed under the frame edge). The certificate recognizes that Emma excelled in Latin, Arithmetic, History of France, Rhetoric, and English Literature. Signed by W. P. Dickinson, President of the Faculty.

With the exception of early fold lines, a water stain in the upper left corner, and two small circular age stains on the lower left and within the word "distinction", condition is quite nice!

Original wood backing remains in place.

Measuring 8 3/4 inches long x 2 1/2 inches wide x 1 3/4 high, this charming wooden pencil box remains in pristine condition despite the fact that it dates to pre-WWII Germany! (Marked "Made in Germany" on cover, lower right side of design) To set it apart from other vintage pencil boxes, this one contains a surprise when the lid is opened-- a diminutive working abacus!! Very, very unusual!!

To add to its charm, the pencil box cover bears a sweet early stencil of Snow White + the Seven Dwarfs! The scene depicts 5 of the dwarfs as well as Prince Charming, sadly escorting Snow White who is lying in her clear glass coffin, having already bitten into the evil witch's poisonous apple and fallen into a deep sleep. Apparently, Prince Charming does not yet realize that all it will take to wake Snow White is a kiss on the lips from him!

The pencil box retains its original hinges and latch and remains in wonderful condition albeit for the signature of a former owner written in black ink in the interior "Susan Smith".

Measuring a phenomenal 10 inches high x 5.75 inches wide, this exceptional antique school bell is quite heavy--the bell itself may very well be made of bronze versus the typical brass due to the its significant weight.

The bell rings with an extraordinarily deep resonance which surely was heard by even the most distant schoolchild!

This piece will surely be the cornerstone of one's vintage olde school house collection!
