Rare Antique large round French Breadboard with the initial G carved into the handle, a stunning dark color. The initials most likely identifies a customer who brought in her bread to be baked at the bakery each week. This board has much 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 quite old, it dates to the mid 19th century.
The board has been cleaned, and oiled, the wood surface has beautiful character and patina, with time worn appeal, plenty of old worm holes and everything we adore. Rustic, hand made, with two cross splines across the back, meant to reinforce the board and to resist warping. A little loose here and there, but to be expected due to its age. Perfect to serve bread and cheese, or an array of appetizers for entertaining guests. Country rustic vintage condition, with scratches, marks and wear befitting its age as shown in photos. Measures 24-1/4" x 28"h.
