A lovely mould from the Haute Savoie region of the French Alps. The dimensions indicate that it would have been used for relatively small varieties of cheese like the tomme d’alpage. The addition of a weight would cause the whey to drain from the holes in the base allowing the cheese to take on its characteristic compact form.
Significant traces of worming.

Diameter 19 cm
Height 9.5 cm


  • H: 9.5cm (3.74in)

Bibliotheca Culinaria began as a specialized publisher providing books to Italy's professional chefs. Our curiosity regarding culinary history led to an interest in material culture and the many tools and objects that relate to agriculture, cooking, and dining.

We've assisted restaurants, pastry shops, and hotels in locating unusual items for their decor and are always delighted to add to a collection of kitchenalia. We welcome the challenge of assembling groups of objects for maximum visual impact. Our stock, largely Italian and French in origin, encompasses a range of materials and eras from Alpine treen to French majolica, from copper pots to Murano glass.

We find objects that display signs of use to be particularly eloquent. Handling them, we are reminded of the lasting impact of simple quotidian gestures and they return us to the particular convivial atmosphere of past times.
