We PCSd from Vicenza, Italy to JBLM last summer and I might have slightly overbought antiques before coming here. This piece is from the Veneto region and comes with authentication documents (including wood worm treatment) from Montesin Antiques. The story behind this Italian bread/dough bowl (called trencher in the US) is that they were used to mix many types of dough for families who ate large quantities of breads and pastas. Search Pinterest for decor ideas and Pottery Barn for price comparisons! Measures 37 in L (93 cm) X 12 in W (30 cm) X 5 in H (13 cm). Please email for more photos of the bottom and the document.
