Offering this vintage wooden bread board with a nice substantial weight, of either oak or maple. We have paired it with an antique bread knife, with the word "BREAD" inscribed into the blade. Knife has a wood handle, with a steel ferrule and blade. Top of bread board has decorative grooves and a larger groove surrounding the center area to accommodate a dome. Sides are domed, or curved, and the center area flat.
Bread board shows signs of use and has signs of the drying of the wood over the years: a crack on one side and a tight hairline on the opposite side on the back. Knife cutting marks are on the back side of the board. Apparently that was the main functioning side and the decorative front was then used for serving, with a glass dome set into the groove.
Board measures approximately 11 inches. Knife is 12 1/2 inches long.
