Antique Wooden Washing Dolly

Antique Wooden Washing Dolly

This antique wooden washing dolly would have been used in Victorian times, when clothes and bedding had to be washed outside by hand.

Doing the laundry was a long and arduous process and the washing dolly was an early implement for making it a little easier. It involved a combination of a downward and rotational movement to move the laundry around in a swirling and twisting motion in a zinc wash tub.

Made of pine, it has a traditional crossways handle at the top, turned support and five legs pegged to the base.

This item would make an interesting decorative piece in a bathroom, or could be used to hold towels, or toilet roll holders in a bathroom.

Dimensions: 41 cms w x 28 cms d x 92 cms h
