Location: Dallas

Hand-carved from select French walnut, this petrin would have been considered an instant family heirloom by its proud owners! Used daily in the bread-making procedure, the cabinet opens to create a proofing chamber for the rising of the dough, while the top surface is ideal for rolling and kneading. Carved with fanciful floral, foliate and musical instrument motifs, it makes a charming accent for any décor.
Circa 1880s.
Measures 35 x 41.5 x 18.5.
