Rare Antique large round French Breadboard with traces of writing on one side a stunning dark color. The writing is either the name of the boulangerie, or the name of a customer who brought in her bread to be baked at the bakery each week. This board has wonderful signs of wear and cut marks, loads of character. A beautiful decorative addition to your French Country kitchen, the sheer size of this makes it a statement accent piece to display. This one is the oldest, it dates to the 1850's, 1860's.
The board has been cleaned, the wood surface has beautiful character and patina, with time worn appeal, old worm holes, the imprints of round baguettes and everything we adore. Rustic, hand made, with two rounded cross splines across the back, meant to reinforce the board and to resist warping. Please note that this board is very worn, with lots of worm holes, please enlarge the photos. Country rustic vintage condition, with scratches, marks and wear befitting its age as shown in photos. Measures 26" x 32"h.
