Antique Early 20th Century Plain White Ironstone Onion Boards by Societe Ceramique of the Netherlands
This is a listing for ONE antique early 20th Century white ironstone onion board.
Antique chopping boards this size served a multitude of purposes in the kitchen, for use for chopping onions and vegetables as originally intended, or as simple yet stylish small serving platters. Elegant in style, they also look stunning simply sitting on display.
Both these examples were made by Societe Céramique, in the Netherlands, at the start of the 20th Century. They have both seen lots of use and have therefore gained a unique timeworn and weathered patina over time.
The left hand board has light crazing all over and patches of staining. There are also scuff and cut marks from use on the the board, which are most notable towards and around the edges. But there are no cracks or chips and it has a unique patina that is very appealing.
The right hand board has some odd spots of staining and crazing all over, but overall it is a cleaner example. Like the left hand board, there are also cut marks around the rim.
These are lovely items which still have many more years’ use in them but are also perfect for display.
