SOLD - Baker's Pétrin
SOLD - A "Pétrin" is a kneading trough (or dough box). It is a wooden vessel with sloping sides and four feet used at home to mix the bread dough and let it ferment and rise overnight under the wooden cover. The size of the box allowed for the preparation of enough bread for the week.
In modern France, we have found "Pétrins" in people's living rooms and hallways: they are a beautiful piece of furniture on which you can place lamps, frames, books or even the TV! They can also be used in bedrooms where the kneading box provides a useful storage for pillows and blankets! This example is made of beautiful walnut wood and is in an amazing condition. It was purchased in the town of Mougins on the French Riviera (South-East part of France).
