This antique French Louis XIII dough chest, or petrin, is a rare find in excellent condition. Originally used in the 1600's as a proofing chamber for bread with the surface used to knead. It was also used as a hope, or blanket chest, by French farm girls whose family could not afford the more expensive marriage armoire. Normally a family heirloom passed from generation to generation. Top lifts off and chest may be removed from legs. Beautifully hand pegged. A spectacular blanket chest for the master suite or guest room or living room coffee or console table.
