Cheese Ladder

Useful in bygone years for making cheese, this cheese ladder features arched side rails united by five mortise rungs. In order to make cheese, the ladder was positioned horizontally over a large tub, and the rungs were covered with cheese cloth holding curds and whey. This allowed the whey to drain from the curds into the tub. Antique ladders like this one can be used today in so many creative, decorative ways: as a pot rack over an island, suspended over a table for holding lights or candles in lanterns, propped against a wall to hold towels, or hung on a wall horizontally with wall decor between the rungs.

Condition: Consistent with age and use. Crack in side rail. Evidence of former woodworm.
