Steel Cheese Trier

hover over image to zoom

A rare and rather beautifully made cheese trier, Georgian, one end of the stirrup is also shaped and sharpened to assist a maker or merchant in the task of removing a core of cheese to test for maturity and to access it’s texture.

 

The tapering shape of the cutting scoop allows the plug to be returned to the wheel for further maturing. The form of this tool is now as was then.

 

Probably English, circa 1780.

 

5 ¼ in long x 3 1/8 across
