A rare dated knitting needle holder and knitting sheath both having the initials WW and the date 1852.

The knitting sheath is intricately decorated with chip carving, an open lantern with a ball, a chain all carved from one piece of wood, small repair to the first link which is attached to the sheath. Lovely knitting sheath in its own right but rare to still remain together with  the knitting needle holder used to stick the points of the knitting needles in with the same date and initials,

    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.
