I was massively disappointed with this item and returned it to the store.The lack of quality didn't justify the price. The one I received (shopped online) had been USED! AND had a watermark or stain on it (probably from a glass). The engraving, color and weight of the board did not meet my expectation(s) as per the picture. Very disappointed.
I LOVE THIS PLATTER! And so do my friends, I believe I have helped sell at least 2 more, just this week. It's substantial, beautiful, easy to clean because it is sealed so nicely, and eye catching unique. I bought some little rubber feet at the hardware store to elevate this platter and keep it still on my granite countertop. Best kitchen/decor purchase of 2014!
I actually love this board and have received many compliments on it. I liked the first one so much that I returned to the store after several months and bought another (both at full price). It is beautiful just set up against my backsplash (as it is on most days). Very attractive as a cheeseboard (I use a slate cheeseboard to protect board and ease in clean up) and large enough you can set out several types on cheese. I have used it on my counter to set large pots of soup and chili, and used it underneath candles (in holder) and flowers as a centerpiece. I highly recommend - especially at this sale price.
I have got SO many compliments on this cheeseboard. I actually use it to display some festive holiday cookies on for Thanksgiving and it looks great! I also think it would look great as a table center piece with some pretty candle votives on it too. I bought 2 for my self and several as gifts and I know they will be a hit. I inspected my boards when I got them due to the other 2 star review and I found nothing wrong with mine, must have been a fluke. LOVE THESE SO MUCH!
I have this saved on my Pinterest as something I looked forward to getting. I also gave one to my sister in law filled with fruit and cheese as a gift for hosting Christmas dinner. So now that it is on sale, I bought one for myself!
What is the size of the scroll work? The diameter is 16 inches however the scroll work must take up some usable space of that 16 inches. So question is either what is the size of the scroll work in inches or what is the usable space of the platter without the scroll work (flat surface)?
