This unique slaw cutter really has it all as attention to detail was a top priority by the maker! A stylized heart cut out graces the tombstone top while the notched ends (top and bottom) offer another pretty element. Of course, the ribbed trim found on the right and left hand sides is just another decorative feature this great piece has to offer!
This slaw cutter dating from the early 19th century was fashioned from white oak which is a hard wood sporting a series of luscious graining detail. The patina is exceptional lending a warm crushed walnut hue with dark areas sprinkled throughout. There are some circular dark marks on the front near the top as well as just below the blade as shown. The canted trim located on the top edge allowed for easy accessibility for the up and down motion of the cabbage when sliced.
There are a couple chipped areas on the edge of the trim as shown in image 10. The blade has darkened with age and shows signs of typical wear from use. A small round head nail is located near the top on the right hand side as shown in image 2 and I am uncertain as to the purpose. The wood is smooth to the touch and this is a heavy piece.
If you choose to hang this slaw cutter on the wall we suggest you use two nails and position them to meet the upward curve of each opposing heart so this piece will be balanced properly. Always a challenge when hanging heart related items! Of course, this slaw cutter could also rest on a table top with ease leaned up against a wall too. Very unique piece that will add character, charm and nice detail to your kitchen instantly! Enjoy!
