Antique Spice Towers - look closely at the labels!


In a previous blog on spice towers I mentioned that when antique spice towers were bought they would have been blank, with no labels. Depending on what spices were used in the household depended on what labels were used.

The image of the four tier antique spice tower shows this with it having two labels for cinnamon, obviously a favourite in that particular house,

If you would like to read more on spice towers check out the blog titled six, five, four.

ANTIQUE TREEN

The word Treen is derived from the word tree and is a term used to describe wooden household objects, all turned from one piece of wood e.g. a bowl, plate, gingerbread mould, and spoons, always having a function.

Nowadays when we talk about Antique Treen it tends to cover all small wooden items including antique snuff boxes, candle stands, spice towers, etc. often made from several pieces of turned wood.

 

When a piece of wood has been painstakingly turned or carved, handled, polished and loved over a few hundred years old, it can develop a wonderful colour and patina and becomes an irresistible piece of Antique Treen.
