Carved Wooden Cheese Mold

$440.00 USD

This large cheese mold with horse and rider design was carved from a single piece of wood more than 15" in diameter.  Unlike other cheese molds of this size, it has great detail in it's design.  This mold dates to the second half of the 19th Century.

"What distinguishes this type of mold from a cookie mold is the back of the mold.  Two large pieces of wood are attached via pegs to the back of the mold, which in turn hold two metal handles in place.  These handles were needed for leverage to pull the mold away from the cheese once it had set."  Thomas Collection, "Mistaken Identity."

The mold is 1" thick and 15" in diameter.  It comes with a metal stand for table display (pictured) and a bracket for wall mounting.

The condition is excellent with some minor losses to the detail.  The mold was made with air relief holes to allow the mold to be pulled away from the cheese once set.

An estimated $40 in included in the price to cover packing, shipping and insurance.
