A lovely 19th century oak box of great colour and patina.

This little chest/ box is full of character and uniqueness. Lift up lid  and there is a label to the underside of the lid saying,

'This chest was made by your great great grandfather Henry Williams (1804-1871) of Peel Gardens Abergele for his wife Mary. The wood of which it is made came from a tree in Peel Gardens".

The two drawers pull out and then there is an extra feature of a secret drawer if you pull out the drawer divider there is a drawer behind it.

Small repair to the top back of the chest.

Unusual to know both the maker the owner and where the oak came from.  

 

It measures 20cm w x 13cm d x 11cm h

    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.
