This slate board would have been used by Qing-dynasty school children as part of the independent studies promoted in provincial academies. While the Ming dynasty can be credited with establishing local schools throughout the empire, it was the relaxed attitudes of the Qing dynasty that shifted education toward an emphasis on classics and literature. Set on a custom steel wall mount, we love it as a decorative wall display or an everyday chalkboard.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
