Each Platter is Uniquely different, no two are the same
Provence platters are completely reconstructed from the two ends of French Oak wine barrels. After aging wine for four seasons in the Bordeaux or California wine country, the barrels are disassembled and completely rebuilt by hand. They are planed and joined so there is zero tolerance between the 8-9 planks making up each platter and held together with a sophisticated Swiss woodworking system called "biscuits".
This platter is then finished with 3 coats of food safe oil/beeswax to protect the wood. Each platter retains the original coopers' marks branded onto the wine barrel prior to its primary purpose of aging wine.
The iron handles are forged in a Brooklyn workshop, every step is by hand, the old fashion way, heating the iron and hand bending through a series of jigs.
The underside of the Provence platter is wine stained from its first four years of life: perhaps it is aged with one of your favorite wines.
