Vintage Child’s Easel Style Double Chalkboard


With a little bit of cleaning up, this vintage double-sided green chalkboard (similar to the one I spent hours drawing on as a child, but much larger!) would be great fun for any kid!  Or two kids playing at the same time, since it has a chalkboard on both sides of the easel!  The piece also has a great space to hold loads of chalk, erasers and so forth!

Condition:  Needs some cleaning up, but otherwise in decent shape.  It appears to have been handmade, but I’ll have to take a closer look to make sure.  Note: The chalkboard got knocked over, and one of the chalk holders fell off, and needs to be reattached.

It also looks like it must have had something across the top; some of the older ones had a scroll of paper, although I don’t think that was the case here.  More likely, it had a plaque or signage of some kind (e.g. nursery rhymes).  A whiteboard could be affixed.

Dimensions: Larger than usual.  This is probably about 5′ tall although the chalkboard drawing area tops out at nearly 18″ below the peak of the frame.

Price:  Just $15.00 at Heritage Collectibles.  Plus the standard 5.5% sales tax, of course!

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially the section we called Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – that was his baby.

He loved me, and oh how I loved him.

Follow our blog at, in honor of my husband, and all others who have been lost to internal demons that in the end, overwhelmed them.

All of the profits after expenses from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps and Papa’s Thrift Shop will go to help fund The Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed.

(Please Note: The Warrior Project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those military personnel wounded after September 11, 20o1.  Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
