Antique Bread Board & Bread Knife


An antique bread board with matching bread knife, each carved with stylised wheat-sheaf motifs. The bread board is of sycamore, richly carved, and sits on a slightly raised foot. The knife has a wheat sheaf patterned handle with "Bread Knife" engraved on its blade; which is also marked "Butler, Sheffield, England". The knife and board have been much loved, and have a wonderful polished patina.

Dimensions of bread board: Diameter 29cm Height 2cm

Dimensions of bread knife: Length 32.5cm

Country of origin: UK

Date of manufacture: c.1920

Condition: there are knife marks across the bread board - which are part of its joy; and there are stains to the wood (see image), yet this is historical, adds character, and beautifully illustrates its life.
