An 18th century beech wood platter of lovely colour and used worn patina. This delightful survivor would have been used as a plate for food and you can see the marks from many knife cutting actions. This one has a cushioned rim and dates from the mid to late 18th century and is incised with a ‘P’ on the underside. English, circa 1770.
