A large basket like container made from rye straw sourced in the Haute Savoie region of France. Similar containers were often used as beehives before the invention of the box hive with its fixed combs. The particular form of this container would seems to indicate it was destined for other uses. Fine condition for a relatively fragile material.

WWW.BIBLIOTHECACULINARIA.IT

Bibliotheca Culinaria began as a specialized publisher providing books to Italy's professional chefs. Our curiosity regarding culinary history led to an interest in material culture and the many tools and objects that relate to agriculture, cooking, and dining.

We've assisted restaurants, pastry shops, and hotels in locating unusual items for their decor and are always delighted to add to a collection of kitchenalia. We welcome the challenge of assembling groups of objects for maximum visual impact. Our stock, largely Italian and French in origin, encompasses a range of materials and eras from Alpine treen to French majolica, from copper pots to Murano glass.

We find objects that display signs of use to be particularly eloquent. Handling them, we are reminded of the lasting impact of simple quotidian gestures and they return us to the particular convivial atmosphere of past times.
