Hand crafted of wormy ash and fruitwood for a large country farmhouse about 1860, a straightforward dough box could serve as a sofa, hall or work table. The base and the lid are separate pieces, all secured with some original square nails and wooden pegs.
Hand planed wide planks have a very fine finish with lots of stain, wear and losses for antique character. This rustic kitchen furniture would have held a large quantity of bread dough as it "proofed" or rises before baking.
You can almost smell the aroma of fresh bread! Measurements are 58" long, 22" deep and 29" tall. This item has sold.
