This early 19th century treenware pepper pot is absolutely awesome! This pot was hand turned and I must say it was beautifully done. The feel of the wood is just as smooth as satin. There is also a handmade bone collar that rides just below the wooden screw top section.
The top of this pot is beehive shaped and there are a total of five (5) shaker openings. Personally I not only love the workmanship of this pot but I very much like the original patina throughout the piece.
There is a separation in the bone collar where the ends were originally made to be attached, but there is none of the original bone missing. The body of the pot has a crack in its side that is 2" long. I can say with assurance that cracks in these early wooden pieces are not uncommon. I would add that for any collector of treenware or pepper pots, this piece would be a prize to own.
The pot is 5" high X 2" wide (at the widest point) X 2" wide at the base. It is my opinion that this pepper pot is in very good condition for its age, early 1800's.
