Ref  EE3  For Amiable Conduct

A silver token, circa 1830. The obverse is engraved : Misses Goulds School Rochester and to obverse : Obtained by amiable conduct. Schools like the Misses Gould's were Dame schools, small private schools run by women which were common in the UK until the introduction of compulsory education in 1880.
The schools were frequently in the teacher’s home, where children were taught the alphabet and some readings from the New Testament and given household chores to do. The token measures 1 and 2/3 inches by 1 and 1/4 inches and is solid and immaculate. It is from the Butler Works of Art Collection.
