Although this has a "hot" mark on the reverse, the board is in wonderful condition for the age. I am sure almost every British kitchen had a board like this on the kitchen table 24 hours a day, with a loaf and knife sitting on it. We ran in from school and cut off a huge chunk of bread before tearing out again! I have three so making myself part with one and this is nicely carved with "BREAD". These are usually pine. Measures 10 1/2 inches across.
