antique early 20th century bramhall carved english bread board

A nice, simply carved English breadboard, made by Bramhall in the early 20th Century, with the word “Bread” clearly carved into its border.

This is a good example of a beechwood early 20th Century carved bread board, dating from the 1920s or 1930s. Carved breadboards were extremely popular household items at the time. This breadboard were made by one of the most famous manufacturers of breadboards at the time, Bramhall, notable for the use of a teardrop in the top of the carved letter ‘B’ of their boards.
The carving is flanked by simple carvings of leaves on each side of the board.

This antique beech breadboard has a scrubbed finish and so is a good board for those wanting one for regular use in the kitchen. However, regular waxing will also revitalise its colour. There are knife marks and wear from use but the carvings are still recognisable. a great colour and is in very good condition. The board sits flat, but can be pressed down slightly at the front and back when pressure is applied. On the left hand side of the board are three light insect indentations. These are long gone but the board has been nonetheless treated for assurance purposes.
