I got this about 20 years ago at a barn sale for $15.00 . Believe it is birch. Was told it was for rising yeast dough. Not an antique, metal label says 1980. However, I love the thing, and it never fails to catch a visitor's eye.
It still makes me smile. while I do bake bread, I have never used it for the intended purpose.
