(SOLD) Large Grain Sifter - Handwoven Metal Sieve
We have run out of stock for this item.
Large grain sifter with bentwood frame and handwoven metal net sieve.
I have seen many small grain sifters in Italy, but not many large ones like this. A sieve "il setaccio" like this would have been hung from a rafter in a storeroom or farmhouse and rocked gently to separate the husks from grain. Today. these sieves are used decoratively. Hung on a wall like a piece of artwork, this large sieve would certainly make a statement.
This is one of two large sieves available from our recent buying trip.
