Porch Nook | Panetière – French Bread Safe, 19th Century

Panetière – French Bread Safe

With each passing year it becomes harder to find these celebrated symbols of the Country French tradition of bread making. The Panetière was a worthy alter used to lock away perishable treasures from the household’s children and pets, placed on a table or hung from a wall. An heirloom piece handed down for generations to celebrate and appreciate the bounty of their land.
