Description

Vintage Chalk and Slate box and chalkboard.  Made by the J. Pressman & Co., Inc., New York, N.Y.  No. 2525.  The box top has several children in school, one with a spelling book, one shooting a spitball. 

I have tried to research this box to find its age, I haven't found another.  I did find that J. Pressman introduced Chinese Checkers in the 1920's, and the now named Pressman Toy Co. has been in business since 1921, and is the oldest family-owned game Company in the United States.

The box is in good condition.  On the lid, there is a tear (taped) on one side, several pieces of tape on the sides, and one corner is split.  The bottom of the box has a tear on one side.  I haven't cleaned the chalkboard, the drawings were there when I purchased it. 

The chalkboard measures approx. 6 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches.  The box is 9 by 11 3/4 inches.
