Antique Late Victorian Carved English Breadboard with Charming Faded Floral Border
A wonderful carved treen wooden breadboard, dating from the late 1800s, oozing character with faded carved decoration, and a rich and timeworn patina.
This 19th Century breadboard is full of character and rustic charm. Although the carved border has faded over time through use, it’s created a mellow and warm patina which, mixed with the rich colour of the board, has created a unique and beautiful piece. The finish on the board is rather primitive and rustic, which adds significant charm to the piece.
Although the carving has clearly worn, the decoration of four flowers, joined by leaves around the outside of the board, is still clearly visible. And the fading creates quite a beautiful and delicate effect.
The board is in overall good condition. It sits flat meaning it is still good for daily use. There are old knife and cutting marks but these weave into the age of the piece. There is also an old split in the side of the wood, however this is barely notable from the front and hasn’t affected the integrity of the board.
