Shabby Worn Cottage Chic Amish Pennsylvania Dutch Hex Distlefink Design Bread and Cutting Board - Vintage 1950 - 1970
Well loved, used and worn cutting board with a classic Amish, Pennsylvania Dutch painting, a Double Distlefink. The Distlefink is the good luck bird of the early Pennsylvania Dutch. The two birds gives a "double" measure of good fortune. The Trinity tulips stand for faith in yourself, faith in what you do and faith in your fellow man. Measures 14" tall including the handle x 7" wide x 1/2" thick Great addition to your Amish collection or for your kitchen wall decor or even to use! Nice!
