Late 19th Century French Terracotta Pancheon or Dough Bowl with Dark Green Glaze
A fantastic late 19th century French terracotta pancheon or dough bowl, circa 1870s, having a dark green glazed lip and interior with green drips. Pancheons were multipurpose kitchen bowls used during the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. In addition to being used as mixing bowls, they were used to proof bread dough, with the bread being baked in the same bowl after rising and to "stand milk" as the cream was rising. Hand thrown, glazed on the inside and unglazed on the outside with a wide, flared shape and broad lip, these once common farmhouse bowls are simple and rustic in design. Pancheons are similar to tian bowls but don't have a spout or handles. It's rare to find one with a green glaze. Perfect for use as a salad bowl, fruit bowl, or planter, and would be great for chilling champagne or wine.
