A lovely small sized  oak writing box and slope. Dating from the early to mid 1800.s. Unusually rather than a lift up lid this writing box has a fixed slope and then a pull out drawer for storage.

The  dovetailed drawer has oak sides and back, and turned knod handle.. Above is the oak slope with a ledge for resting papers on and then to the top it has a ledge  with moulding  for storing pens

Lovely colour and patina. It measures 23.5cm w x 22cm d x 18cm h at the longest points.

Antique Oak Writing Box - Small Proportions

    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.

    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.
