S/4255 Antique Treen 19th Century Pine Circular Soft Cheese Press
An interesting Swedish pine circular soft cheese press, having a deeply carved star design that would leave a pronounced double star impression on the cheese, and the weep holes would release the moisture when it was pressed down hard. The historic worm holes have now been treated, just in case. The whole has a medium colour and retains a patination.
