French Vintage wooden cheese mould 1/3
To make the famous “reblochon”
To “reboche” means to milk a cow one more time. Usually, peasants milked cows three times a day but sometimes, to make extra cheese for themselves, they milked their cow by night. That wasn’t legal but that was a way to have enough to eat every day.
That’s not really allowed practice gave the cheese its name : reblochon.
This mould is still in its original condition. There are important casein traces.
There’s also a small damaged to be noticed on the bottom.
The body of the mould is made stave by stave. Some of them are slightly moving. There are two wooden belts maintaining the staves together. The upper belt is going awry. It can’t be restored.
Diameter : 6.69” – Height : 4.01”
