SOLD- vintage schoolhouse room number thingys- $58/each

as great as these are, i just don't know exactly what to call them. what i do know, however, is this. these 3 unique relics were salvaged from the old John Hay Elementary school on Queen Anne which opened its doors to the children on the hill in 1905. these gorgeous glass-faced, numbered frame things hung in the hallway outside each classroom door, and listed the class roll and the teacher in charge. all of the wood and glass is in fantastic shape, as are the real sweet numbers painted onto each one. i sort of envision them repurposed as menu/sign displays (if you own a cool restaurant or cafe), art frames, or.... perhaps they should remain as schoolhouse room number thingys.
