  33. but it look like a wheel/roller at the business end. which wouldn't work well with cheese. It would roll with pasta/pastry dough that has been rolled out on a cutting board to cut the dough/pasta.

  48. does look more like a dresser/trinket box to me also; but who can say for sure without a maker's catalog. The closest I find is Fostoria #93 Guttate c1893 but can't find a box in that pattern. Consoli...
