Large Open-Sided French Standing Willow Baguette Basket from Boulangerie
Hard to find open-sided French standing baguette bread basket, circa early 1900s. This semicircle willow basket with a lovely color and aged patina was used to showcase freshly baked baguettes in a French boulangerie. Wooden slat bottom runners for extra support. A wonderful French Country accent for your home that can also function as an umbrella stand.
Bread has a special status in France. For centuries, it was their main food source — their staff of life literally. Boulangeries are as common in France as a corner shop in England. There are various local types of bread specific to different parts of France, and no two bakers are the same. More than 320 baguettes are consumed every second in France, amounting to over 30 million each day and over 10 billion per year. Roughly 97% of French families purchase and consume bread daily and 99.8% of the French population lives less than a 15 minute drive from a boulangerie or pâtisserie.
