This is quite an unusual piece and very interesting. A very heavy and thick cutting board with old knife marks, etc. One side now has three animal diagrams (cow, hog, sheep) showing the various cuts of meat from the animal. All three are in French. Overall size of the piece is 20 x 15 1/4 x 2 1/4 inches. Very good condition (knife marks) with a little separation of the paper in a couple places. Board has a handle on one end and would be ideal to hang on your kitchen wall or will sit standing up by itself. A little hard to date but late 19th or early 20th century I would say. Nice early country French piece. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Either email any day of the week or call at our store 574-594-9100 on Friday, or Saturday. A word about condition. Those of you who have purchased from me before know that I am very picky about condition. I will try to note anything of significance in the description. However, please check the photos carefully---as they say `a picture is worth a thousand words' We will help arrange shipping for you; our experience with large or small has been excellent. We do offer an easy layaway program. Usually 20% down, with the remaining term somewhat negotiable. Please email us before you buy if you would like to discuss layaway terms. We have been in business over 30 years and our reputation is without flaw.
