Panetiere, France, c.1790.
This walnut bread or food storage cabinet takes a form peculiar to the country French. They were usually hung on the wall, over a petrin, and were always open, with spindles forming the sides and front. The single door in the front has a cut out in the form of a heart. This particular panetiere has a flat top instead of the more common chapeau-de-gendarme shape. A stone top with a honed finish has been added without any modifications to the original 18th century piece, making it ideal for an interesting and unique lamp table!
