This is a wonderful piece of Scandinavian folk art - a large wooden 19th Century cheese mould featuring a carved floral design.  

Typical of Swedish folk art at the time, this bleached wood cheese mould has a carved geometric floral pattern on its base, and this emblem was a symbol of good luck and health. Holes in the base of the mould allowed the whey to drip away

This is a fantastic rustic and tactile mould. Dowel rods hold it together and it's a very sturdy piece. 

A lovely insight into Swedish history, this is a wonderful decorative feature in its own right. It could also be used as a small feature shelf to display smaller pieces simultaneously.

Apart from general age and wear, including small pieces of loss, to the fittings and the wood in some places, the mould is in good overall condition. It still stands very sturdily. There are some old worm holes in places but the piece has been treated. 

Length, 27.5cm; Width, 17.5cm; Height, 10cm
