The charm of the Americana style is based on American history and folklore. A combination of antique utilitarian artifacts with patriotic crafts have plain colors, only the barest ornaments, unpretentious and homespun. Americana brings back charming memories of America’s past. This design of an old-fashioned washboard would make a great gift for the history buff or history teacher.
