Antique French dough box ” Petrin “

We bought this beautiful simple French provincial dough box as being 19th Century , but it looks as if it could be a lot earlier in date . We bought it as a really smart unusual decorative piece of furniture , and to us it doesn’t matter if its 19th century or early 18th century , its still a lovely genuine honest piece of country furniture .

Apparently they are called ” Petrin ” in France , and the dough was placed inside to prove , and the top was used for kneading . Today it could be used as storage , or as a side table .

Its a mix of oak and elm with a nice patina .
