Templeton Country Store Cheese Slicer from 1903

This industrial iron cheese slicer was patented and manufactured by The Computing Scale Company out of Dayton, Ohio in 1903 (The Computing Scale Company would later become International Business Machines Corporation). This particular model, "THE TEMPLETON," is sometimes known as country store cheese cutter. It features tools to help with adjusting for different weights and measuring different slices. The cheese slicer retains a fair amount of its original turquoise blue paint, the gold label reading, "THE TEMPLETON," and a metal plate that gives the name of the manufacturing company as well as the patent dates for the slicer. Dimensions: 10" tall and 18 1/2" in diameter (not including the handle). For shipping quote, please contact Box Brothers Sacramento at boxbrosacto@gmail.com.


There is significant paint loss to the entire surface of the cheese slicer and some rusting, but overall all it is in fairly good condition.
