Cheese Board and Dome

This Nostrano Cheese Board comes with a Glass Lid

These guys at Legnoart really have some high ideas – this is what they stand for “The love for beautiful things, the knowledge of the functional and technical aspects of the product, the belief that domestic life is an individual space to conquer so that freedom of choice can truly nourish, in short, the determination to empower an authentic life style, unconditioned and untainted by consumerism, is the mission and goal of Legnoart.”

Make sense? We don’t think so either – however what we do know is that this is one smart looking cheese board and dome. It looks great and is sure to help show off your cheese in a way that cheese deserves!
