Antique Victorian Deeply Carved Bread Board with Beautifully Detailed Wheat Border
A wonderful example of an English Victorian carved breadboard, featuring a stunning deeply carved and intricate wheat eat and leaf pattern around the border.
These English carved treen breadboards are becoming rarer and rarer to source, especially in good condition with the carving still sharp and deep. This is a lovely example of a Victorian bread board.
It is quite common for breadboards to have wheat and leaves decorating their borders, but this pattern stands out from these due to how deep the carving is, with lots of detail on the linked wheat ears, layered upon the leaves in the background.
It has clearly been loved through its lifetime as it is in excellent condition. There are some knife marks from use but care has been taken to protect the border.
The board largely sits flat. There is a small split on the wood about 1.5cm long on one side. This has resulted in being able to push the board very slightly down on one side, but this isn’t significant and is too small to be able to capture in photographs.
