A safe place for your cheese!

The humble cheese safe or “ garde fromage” as it is known here was a mainstay of any rural cuisine.
It was used for drying and storing cheese. The mesh ensured that the cheese was well aired whilst protecting it from insects.
This has had a lick of paint at some time in it’s past which has now acquired the shabby chic appeal that we know and love.
It would make a quirky side table or could be wall hung.
