  • Hello, I’m looking for a metal cheese server that is shaped like a wedge of cheese with holes in it, 3″ by 3 1/2″. It is flat but rather heavy, with no handle. It was purchased somewhere in the Muskoka area north of Toronto. Has anyone ever seen this item? It could have been an artisan-created piece. Thanks for responding, Arly Spink
