Antique French Provencal "Fariniere" c. 1790/1820

Very Old Provencal French Antique Flour Box, 'Fariniere', +++ PRICE REDUCTION +++

For many decades, or for that matter centuries, virtually every French kitchen had a special box for keeping flour ('farine' is the French word). This is one of those emblematic items that was in most kitchens of Provence, but now they are rarely found, especially in good condition...and they are highly collectable. This rare example dates from the late 1700s to early 1800s.

This 'fariniere', made of walnut, with pine at the back, is in the traditional early 'box' shape with a sliding front panel. This antique farinere was hand-crafted with a charming naive carving of a flower filled urn on the sliding panel and more flowers at the top and bottom This fariniere is unusual in that it was intended only to hang.

This fine box, with its charming decoration is in excellent antique condition, with some expected woodworm and minor signs of use. (Please see photos for additional condition information.) It would be a fine decorative piece which would add an authentic 'Provencal' touch to a French kitchen decor.

The measurements are 16 inches from top to bottom at the front, 3 1/4 inches deep, and 8 3/4 inches wide across the front.

Please look at the photos carefully to see condition, as our photos form part of our description... if you would like to see more, don't hesitate to ask.

++A rare and fabulous addition to a French Provencal Country style kitchen...

++Please note that our photos form part of our them carefully and if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask.++

By Appointment

For a number of years now, we have had a business selling fine French vintage and antique linens, and a selected group of other vintage and antique items worldwide and please do let us know if you have any specific requests. We have a large stock of beautiful things and we enjoy the challenge of finding just what you are looking for.


To introduce ourselves, we are a husband and wife team, he's Irish and I'm American, who live in France in the charming and historic town in the South of France called Pezenas.

For us it is particularly special in that there is a street filled with over 20 antique shops just blocks from our house!


We travel often on weekends during the spring and summer to flea markets, 'brocantes' and antiques fairs all over the south of France, searching for the linens and the other items we sell.

When at home we enjoy our family--especially our children and our 3 adorable English grandchildren-- when they can visit us, or we can visit them in England.

My son comes to visit us once a year from America.


While my husband does all the 'admin' work for our business, I do lots of washing and ironing of the vintage linens we sell which strangely I can say I really enjoy!

I'd love to find more time to paint, knit and sew--and maybe that will happen!


All in all, we love our life here in France and the work we do to bring these fine old linens and antiques to our customers around the world.


Again thank you so much for visiting us...and do come back often...we are always adding 'new' old things...and we love making new friends!
