B902 - SOLD
This is an unusual set of 6 vintage French cheese markers that came from a shop.They were used to stick in the cheeses to identify them to the customers.
They are silver plated on metal and are of lovely quality and weight. 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 horned cows - GOUDA, CAMEMBERT, EMMENTAL, & BRIE a lovely wooly sheep - ROQUEFORT, and last but not least a cute little bearded goat - CHEVRE.
The markers 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 markers could be used in the middle of a large cheese.
Each marker measures approx. 5.5 cm (2.25 inches) wide x 6.5 cm (2.5 inches) to the bottom of the spikes.
They are in lovely condition with no wear to the silver plating.
A gorgeous set of markers to set your cheese display apart from all others and another superb vintage French brocante find from La Belle Étoffe!
