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.

    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.
