EARLY 1900 PATENTED WOODEN WASHING MACHINE
Age. See below
Composition. See below
Size. 39” high, 25 ˝” wide/deep
Comments. Made of hardwood by the 1900 Washer Company of Birmingham, NY that has a pattern date of 8 – 2 – 1898. The washtub sits on a base with arched legs that has cast-iron center supports and the tub has thick galvanized metal rod stays. Under its top are metal/wood agitators with a metal center support bar. Grab the handle and move forward so the tub spins for a short time to/fro automatically via a spring – loaded base. The original finish is well-worn and the wood has a nice aged patina. It even has the original decal which is quite readable. This item is in sturdy shape with normal use wear, has wood wear, small, shallow wood dents, small chips and soiling/stains. We are unsure if this item is complete so it is being sold as is. Give it a “cleaning” and you can try your luck at washing your clothes the old-fashioned way or repurpose it into many new uses. We suggest the latter.

To save our bidders time, our system is desgined to accept "maximum bids."
A "maximum bid" is the highest bid you are willing to place on an item.
Our system will automatically bid for you, in the required increments, up to your "maximum bid."
The initial bid placed for you will be only as high as required to outbid any current bidders should your "maximum bid" be highest.
This means that you will always pay the minimum price required to "win" an item, and not necessarily your "maximum bid"
**NOTE: In the event that your maximum bid ties a previously left maximum bid, the previously left maximum bid will prevail.
**If you are the current High Bidder, entering another "Maximum Bid" will simply adjust your current "Maximum Bid" to the new amount providing it is higher than the "Current Bid". You are allowed to increase or decrease your "Maximum Bid"
