19th Century French White Onion Board, almost impossible to find, these white antique wonders are high on the list of many collectors. These boards were used for cutting onions, since the onion smell would not seep into the boards as it did with wooden boards. Once a staple in every French kitchen, since they were used every day in the kitchen, few survived.
Just big enough to hold one or two onions, these have all the patina and wear you want and would expect from a useful antique of this age. A wonderful addition to your collection of antique whiteware, display with your ironstone pieces, and kitchen antiques, from the mid 1800's. Each has wear, chips, and a century and more of patina and charm. A little quirky, a lot interesting, will add personality to your French Country home. Measures 8" x 5".
