Forn Sarret


An 1898 Modernista bakery with delightful marquetry doors and a coat of arms above the door depicting an allegory of the wheat harvest.

This bakery was decorated in around 1898, and is striking because of the overall impression created by the wooden frames, which house the sign with curving lines and oval shapes that extend to the façade of the building. On the wall between the two entrance doors there is a shield showing a woman reaping. The sign is now printed, but could originally have been of leaded glass.
