It comes complete with the original natural, unbleached, linen liner sewn into the wicker with traditional large cotton stitches. The liner, whilst having darkened from years of use, is perfectly clean, making this basket usable for many years to come.
These baskets were traditional used by French boulangers (bakers) to prove their baguettes. This basket provides support for a proofing loaf; the linen liner reduces sticking and yields a smoother crust than an unlined basket.
Wonderfully practical, full of character and rustic charm it would look great displayed in a traditional farmhouse kitchen or in a vintage tea room.
It in amazing condition, with no obvious damage to the wicker. It is solid and sturdy and has many years of service still to offer.
It carries with it the look and feel of a 'by-gone' era when every French Boulangerie had a myriad of these wonderful baskets filled with proving dough on a daily basis.
It measures 44cms/ 17¼" long x 16cms/ 6¼" wide and is 8cms/ 3¼" deep.
It weighs 300gms / 10½ozs.
