This charcuterie board, handmade in Puglia, Italy is crafted from olivewood from fallen branches of 5 to 10-year-old trees. Ideal for charcuterie or as a chopping board or a serving board. We commissioned this special charcuterie board that is customized for Biordi Art Imports. The wood is the highest quality olivewood from Italy and the perfect accompaniment for your Italian table. Every piece is hand-made and unique with variations in wood coloration and grain. The boards are finished with a food-safe mix of local beeswax and vegetable oil The natural wood grain provides a stunning background for cheese, tapas, bread, and hors d'oeuvres.
The small imperfections such as the difference in color, shape, diameter or small bubbles that form inside, do not constitute a defect but testify that it is actually an artisanal product.

Italian ceramics are heirloom quality products, and can last lifetime with proper care. We have some suggestions that will preserve your majolica for years to come.
Majolica is dishwasher safe, but many people choose to hand wash their pieces as a precaution. Because majolica is a porous material, some pieces are not meant to hold liquid for a long period of time. Check for warning labels before ordering a product, as the pieces that are most notorious for "sweating" are appropriately labeled.
Majolica is sensitive to extreme temperatures, specifically boiling or freezing liquids. Pouring water with a rolling boil directly into a teapot, for example, may lead to breakage. To avoid this, temper the object. The industry standard is 620 degrees Celsius (1,148 degrees Fahrenheit). Quench the glass to cool it.
Crazing is common in well used majolica. The tiny cracks in the glaze do not affect the functionality of your majolica.
Majolica hand-crafted products should not be microwaved, as it may crack and/or break the ceramics.
