This is a stunning antique French bread proving basket. These were all hand woven and it is getting harder and harder to find them in good condition as often they became worn and damaged and were then burnt.
The dough would be made and then left to prove in these baskets. This is a really beautiful large round basket for a big farmhouse loaf and it is in really excellent vintage condition. Fabulous for bread rolls for the table, for fruit, or for all manner of things, whatever you use it for it will look gorgeous!
It measures 31 cms (12.2") diameter and 10.5 cms (4.2") high.
