Handmade Vintage Rustic Oak Plate with Agate Inlay

I was fortunate to have stumbled upon a great little bundle of handmade vintage wood vases, trinket boxes and such, made by a local artist who had been making these for some time and decided to clean up; He was about to burn them and so I took them and I'm offering some of the older pieces in my Etsy Store. I will post the newer, non- vintage pieces on my website The picture below is from one of the older vintage pieces from my Etsy shop. Click here to read more about this item.

Notice the agate and beach stone inlay all around the outer rim of the plate. It looks awesome!

Rustic Beach Cottage Recycled Wine Bottle Cheese Platter Plate Tray Gift Package

As you are well aware by now, one of my favorite items to make is from recycled materials, especially recycled wine bottles.  What I personally love about this cheese tray is the dark, dark olive color; it almost looks black.  The finish is shiny and mirror-like.  You've probably seen cheese trays before and they don't really impress you anymore, but I'm really trying to bring you something unique with the design of this cheese tray and you'll notice the neck is quite different than what you would usually see.  I named it: "The swan neck cheese platter", for obvious reasons...  I also etched a beautiful shell motif.  It's a permanent etching; it's not painted.  I used acid to actually burn into the glass and therefore the motif will not wear off.   You can even throw it in the dishwasher... how great is that.  A cheese tray, such as this one, is an amazing conversation piece for your next wine and cheese party... Each one comes with a cute little cheese spreader / knife, a handmade burlap bag and a beautiful grosgrain ribbon in either brown, purple, lime or orange and a very charming description card.  Click here to see more info on this great gift package.
