No collector ever has enough treen. Below is a great selection of nice and unique treen items.

                                  TAPE LOOM

Women used these tape loomss to make tape of all width for so many items. In the 17th and 18th Century it was a household necessity. I love them and have several myself and actually use them to make tape for repairs and ties. This one is late 18th to early 19th Century and was found in Connecticut. It is in untouched condition and is 23" high x 11 1/4" wide.


                           SAUERKRAUT CONTAINER

One of the best containers I have had in a very long time. It was ,I believe, used to make sauerkraut and is from the early 19th Century. From New England and dating to the early 19th Century, it retains its wonderful  brown surface and its original masher or stomper. Overall height is 51" and the base container is 21" high. Top diameter is 10" and the bottom is 14 1/4" diameter.


                                  WALL BOX

A simple wall box found in Bishop Hill, Illinois and most likely used in a barn. It is later 19th Century and measures 20" high x 10 1/4" wide x 8 1/2" deep. Surface is dry and has a bit of the remains of white paint still left in the corners but only faintly.


                                BLACK PAINTED BOX

With a neat leather handle and nice worn black paint this box was probably for tools or utilitarian of some sort. It has butt hinges and is 14 1/2" long x 5" deep x 4 3/4" high.


                                    BOOT JACK

Made from a tree branch, the boot jack has been used for years and shows the wear in a good way. Boy, talk about using what they had.....this is a prime example. It also works and could be used as well as displayed. It  measures 18 3/4" long.
