FS2050 19th Century Whetstone
FS2050 19th Century Whetstone $75.
What a conversation piece. Are you familiar with whetstones? Let me explain. A whetstone is a stone used to sharpen tools, or the cutting edge of a blade or weapon. The whetstone was first lubricated with water before use, hence the name whetstone.This whetstone belonged to Jill Peterson, and I am told that the framing around the stone is original, and the wooden block is also early but probably added later. What a wonderful primitive for a early country home, or one that you are trying to give a early look, it even has a string for hanging. Measures 7-1/4 inches x 3-5/8 inches. $75. Includes shipping.
