B1232 - SOLD
This is a cute & unusual set of 6 vintage French cheese signs that possibly came from a shop. They would have been used to stick in the cheeses to identify them to the customers.
They are silver plated onto a base metal. Each marker is made in the shape of the animal from which the cheese originated and bears the corresponding cheese name. We have 4 gorgeous cows - GOUDA, CAMEMBERT, REBLOCHON & BRIE, a lovely wooly sheep - ROQUEFORT, and last but not least a cute little bearded goat - CHEVRE.
The signs are made in lovely quality and detail and are finished so that we can see both sides of the animal. The name of the cheese also appears on both sides so the signs could be used in the middle of a large cheese.
Each sign measures approx. 3 cm (1.25 inches) wide x 5 cm (2 inches) high.
They are in good vintage condition. The silver plating has dulled a little on the backs but the fronts remain shiny with just a little patina.
A gorgeous set of signs to set your cheese display apart from all others and another superb vintage French brocante find from La Belle Étoffe!
