SKU: 17585

This listing is part of the 'At Home with Patricia Wells' collection of epicurean objects and decorative antiques.

This superbly timeworn cheeseboard dates from the late-nineteenth to early twentieth century. It comes from Chanteduc, the home of Patricia and Walter Wells in Provence. Patricia remembers finding it in Beaune, Burgundy, and loves using it for serving cheese and adores its rustic beauty. It was originally used for drying whole wheels of Brie de Meaux and is made from one piece of wood.

Patricia had one of her favorite potters in Coustellet, make the cheese labels for her. There are eight little labels with metal spikes. Patricia explains that it is important for guests to know what you are serving them - especially when it comes to French fromage! This ensemble would make a superb gift for a cheese lover.

The 8 labels read:

Saint Marcellin
Brique de Brebis
Le Rove
Brebis Basque
