Why is it called a speculoos board? Probably from Latin (Speculum) is mirror image; The hand-carved motifs in the shelf are mirrored.

Speculoos boards already existed in the 16th century.
These speculoos boards are all of the 20th century.

The speculoos boards will be packaged with great care (biscuit planks) and shipped with Track & Trace.
