A lovely quality English antique treen boxwood urn shaped lemon squeezer, having a top that unscrews, revealing a long wood screw with a flat and rounded knob on the end to crush the lemon, which allows the juice to come from the spout at the bottom. It also has the added unusual decorative feature of small carved boxwood balls around the lid. Very tactile with good colour and patina in very good condition with no cracks-these are often suceptible to cracks.
It measures 18cm l x 8.5cm w at the urn body.
