This vintage tinned steel hand crank grater by Mouli of France was typically used for hard cheeses, chocolate, and similar items. It can be converted for use by left handed people by unclamping and switching the handled attachment to the other side. The last patent number embossed on the hopper dates to 1952. The red wood handle is faded, otherwise the grater is in excellent vintage condition, clean and shiny with no stains, corrosion, or rust.
