Two Snowshoe-Shaped Prune Drying Racks from the Dordogne
We love these marvelous and large snowshoe-shaped "Clés des Prunes" that were used to dry plums in large ovens. Agen, the capital of the Lot et Garonne in southwestern France, is known as the "Prune Capital of the World" and produced triangular racks. An adjoining region, the Dordogne, has its own snowshoe-shaped clés des prunes shown here. We use them as modern geometric wall art. PLEASE NOTE these are priced and sold individually.
