Curators Notes

With origins in traditional French bakeries and boulangeries, antique French proofing baskets, also known as bannetons, have a rich history rooted in artisanal bread-making. Crafted from natural materials like wicker or rattan, these baskets were used to support and shape dough during the proofing process, allowing it to rise and develop its characteristic texture and flavor. Today, these vintage baskets are cherished not only for their historical significance but also for their timeless charm and practicality in home baking. Displayed as rustic decor or used as functional tools, they evoke the warmth and authenticity of traditional French baking techniques, making them a beloved addition to any kitchen
