Artifact of the Week: Dining Tablecloth Brush

This dining tablecloth brush used locally, is similar to other types of clothes brushes used in this area, c. 1840. Brushing crumbs, dust, and lint away helped to keep the cloth clean, which was especially useful before machine washing made it easier to wash large items frequently.
