19th Century French Pancheon or Dough Bowl with Honey Yellow Glaze



A late 19th century French pancheon or dough bowl with an interior honey yellow glaze and caramel splatters, circa 1880s. Pancheons were multipurpose terracotta 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, as well as 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 flat lip, these once common farmhouse bowls are simple and rustic in design and somewhat rare today. Similar to tian bowls, they don't have a spout or handles. This lovely bowl is perfect for use as a salad bowl, fruit bowl, or planter, and would be great for chilling drinks. Dimensions: height - 6" diameter - 16.5".
