Vintage School Slate

Description

Slates were commonly used in schools in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. A slate is a small, rectangular blackboard made from slate stone. The edges were wrapped in leather or wood to protect students' hands. Students used slates because paper and ink were expensive.
