Size-
15 inches in length
2 & 5/8 inches wide
3/4 inch thick

Condition-
As pictured
Completely usable as a functional counter :)
Flaws- NO dents! Some shiny spots (one on each side) possibly from some wayward glue. Where the white strip meets the edge on one side, there is a small rough spot of wood.Some shall I say, "marking" on the beads, (as can be seen in the pics) but they are from the manufacturing process &/or aging so it only adds to it's charm!
I can find no makers marks on this piece & I searched meticulously. So that means I cannot pin point a year. It has been in my Great Grandmother's house for generations though!

Materials-
I am not too familiar w/ bakelite, but w/ some research I have reason to believe the beads are bakelite, my other thought was bone, & wishful thinking maybe ivory :)
The frame is black wood (not sure if it was stained or natural ) Very well made! Super smooth wood.
Wood or bamboo dowels hold the beads to the frame.
Also there is a white strip of some material along the front (as pictured) This could be bone, ivory, could be man-made material,but it appears natural.
This is a high quality piece! They sure made them to last back in the day.

Enjoy it every time you look at it, great conversation piece & visual impact.
Instantly adds a unique touch to your decor. Have it on a shelf, or hang it on the wall, it is a absolutely neat piece that will bring that special appeal to your home &/or office.

This has been loved before, but not for many years, so giving it new life is eco friendly!
