Couronne banneton

On the Julia Child video series with Steve Sullivan, from Acme Bakery, he had a really great looking banneton that was for shaping a couronne.  Anyone have a source for one of these?

Hi Steve,

I ordered a couronne banneton from this French supplier. It turned out to be hugely expensive with the shipping, and if I had been thinking more clearly I surely would have not done it. I searched everywhere I could think of in the US but couldn't find one.

Before I got it, I rigged something up out of a shallow bowl and a one-pint plastic container, draped with a piece of linen. It worked fine.
