A complete set of thirty six Victoriam bricks of the Kings and Queens of England with historica;l information to the back of each brick. These would have been used as an educational toy.

Each wooden brick features a King or Queen on the front with the date they began to reign and on the back a few facts.

For example on the back of Richard 1st it says 

Began to reign in 1189

Age 32

Died 1199

Character - Generous

Event - Richard goes to the Holy War


On the back of  the brick for Elizabeth Ist :

Began to reign 1558

Age 25


Character- Vain

Event - Spanish Armarda destroyed

They come in the original box with a sliding lid.  On the lid it says ARRANGED IN BRICKS, The Kings and Queens of England with historical references. The lid has been repaired at some stage and the split is stable.

There is a stamp to the base saying Grant Brot   228 High St Exeter. The box measures 20cm l x 12cm w x 5.7cm h.

Antique Historical Education Bricks

    We first became involved in Antique Treen and furniture some twenty five years ago and since then a passion for Treen, small wooden snuff boxes and decorative wooden items has developed into Opus Antiques.

    This web site shows only a  small selection of our current stock for sale, if you are looking for something you don't see, please contact us.


    We are also interested in buying Antique Treen items. As well as using our Contact page, you can also email or telephone us on 07941 285532


    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.
