This playfully framed print celebrates both childhood pleasures and grown-up ingenuity. The image is an actual patent image from 1871 for an innovation in the classic playground seesaw by "Mrs. S. E. Saul." While the drawing may have served technical and administrative purposes, it is beautifully rendered, with creative hand-lettering and great attention to detail, down to the fine wood grain texture of the device. The print's BonanzaWood® frame has its own innovative twist: a small, functioning seesaw is built into the base. Whether displayed in a home or office, this is a perfect piece for inventors, history buffs and the young at heart. Printed on 100% archival enhanced matte paper. Comes with hanging hardware. From the National Archives collection. Made in Portland, Oregon.
