Antique French Kneading Dough Trough or Box


Handcrafted from French oak and dating back to the early 19th century. This is a French bread dough trough which was a typical sight in the kitchens of large homes. The dough would be kneaded on the counter top and then placed inside the trough or box to rise. Several batches of dough would be kept to rise. Solid turned legs and stretcher base. Original hardware. Top lifts on one side and stays open with original hinges. Perfect for many uses including a console, kitchen island, blanket chest, TV console, or even to place a vessel sink on top and use as a vanity. See the last photo.
