Three-legged antique tree-slice butcher block. Bought this out of Indianapolis in the 1970s (in a snowstorm,) and it sat in our kitchen for 40 years. It was already very old when we got it. No screws, no nails, the legs just slip into holes in the bottom.It is milled perfectly round, with an embellishment detail ring on the sides, so I think professionally made, rather than strictly primitive. Those tree rings hold the answer! Top measures about 32" diameter, and it stands 25" high, and about 12 thick. Real butchering blocks were typically low, so a beef side could be laid on it. Obviously this one hasn't been in the butcher shop for a long time, but certainly saw its share of vegetable chopping and pie cutting, etc.
In the past half century. Simply no place for it in smaller home--time to pass the legacy on! The finish is all original--side painted a dark red, and the bottom and legs were once white.Given the texture and durability, I think this must be a milk-paint formula--sheer, extremely durable, and non-toxic. We never did ANYTHING to it, other than wipe it off and use it. Offering this for local pick-up only. I think two people could lift it to load in a vehicle--easily transported in an SUV.
