No collector ever has enough treen. Below is a great selection of nice and unique treen items.
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.
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.
The candle dryer is in wonderful as found condition. Nothing looks nicer then a dryer like this hanging from a beam loaded with candles. All of the hooks are there and it is 6 1/2" high with a 8 1/2" x 8 3/4" top diameter.
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.
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.
The scoop or ladle is hand made and is a really unique addition to a buttery or treen collection. It is 22" long and looks great hanging or laying across a bowl or kettle. Found in TN and 19th Century with great surface.
