I'm very excited about this find, mainly because i have never seen this size and shape before. These baskets were used to prove (let rise) french loaves before baking. The french stopped using these in the early 60's for hygene reasons. The baskets are very well made, quite sturdy, and lined in old linen. I have scrubbed them clean, but if you wish to have them cleaner, a gentle detergent should be used. In excellent vintage condition, the listing is for ONE basket. Contact me if you would like more.

12 inches by 6 1/2 inches (30 cm by 17 cm)

Please refer to my shop policies for information on combined shipping, thank you.
