Antique Victorian Carved English Breadboard – Our Daily Bread Motto

antique victorian carved english sycamore breadboard our daily bread motto treen wooden

A wonderful timeworn and charming antique Victorian carved English breadboard, with an “Our Daily Bread” motto.

This is a great example of a well loved Victorian carved bread board, dating from the late 1800s. Carved breadboards were extremely popular household items at the time, often given as wedding presents.

Although the motto on the top of this board has faded over time, this is still a great breadboard, with the rosette and floral garland on the bottom half still very clearly defined. The board also sits completely flat still.

The board came to me in quite dry condition and so has been waxed to add nourishment to the wood. There are still some dry patches around the border, but regular waxing would help to treat this.

The board has cut marks from use, and the edge of the board has also been knocked and bumped over time. But these all add to the faded charm of this board.
