Wooden Frame, Wooden Ribs Washboard

An all wooden washboard, the ribs are progressively flatter as one moves down the board, which seems like the inevitable result of scrubbery.   The ribs themselves consist of three panels which have a bit of movement within the frame; as I have noticed this in wooden boards before I suspect this is original and deliberate, maybe to counteract the effect of water entering the joints.  11" (main body width) x 19½ " (including legs of 4 ½”)
