‘South Carolina Joggling Board’, Rago

Painted in traditional Charleston green.

USA. 20th C.

Note: Part children's toy, part porch rocker, part decorative element, the joggling board's usage in the Lowcountry around Charleston, SC is documented from the Early 1800s. Also jokingly called a "Courting Board", as continuous, gentle bouncing gradually brings two people closer to the middle--and each other.

Signature: Marked with tag "Old Charleston Joggling Board"
