Object of Desire: French Hand Tools from Le Prince Jardinier

March 8, 2017

Do former bankers turn into the most passionate tomato gardeners? The strong feelings of French aristocrat Louis Albert de Broglie, owner of the 16th century Loire Valley chateau-turned-hotel La Bourdaisiere and grower of many exotic tomato varieties, are in evidence in his collection of Le Prince Jardinier garden tools.

Designed to last a lifetime (or two) and to still look as stylish when your grandchildren inherit them, the stainless steel tools with riveted wood handles come in a jute sleeve to protect the shine:
