This amazing board is dated 1698 on the 15th of November. There is an inscription in German running all the way around the board, beautifully and concisely carved. You can see 'Anno 1698 den 15. november' and I can also read 'macht alle arbeitg'....do all the work?
Made of oak, heavy and sturdy, excellent condition.
