An interesting, 19th century, beechwood breadboard carved with leaves and flowers. The border to this board is quite deeply carved and the long leaves resemble ferns. The carving is a little naive in style but it is quite an unusual design and it dates from c.1880. There are some burn marks to the reverse, which can be seen in the image, there is a short but tight crack to the rim, and there are marks to the face of the board which are the result of knots in the wood. The wood has an attractive, pale patina.
Dimensions: Diameter 29.8cm. Depth 1.7cm.
