This is a wonderfully tactile item from the start of the 19th century. This lidded wood container was produced in Scotland circa 1810. The container or urn is constructed from desirable Laburnum wood and was used for storing spice in the kitchen. Due to the type of wood and the overall quality of the piece, this container would have almost certainly been used in the kitchen of a wealthy family. This is a high quality item with the most wonderful natural patina; we particularly like the classical Campagna shape which is so characteristic of Georgian elegance. This fine piece of treen will display excellently in any interior. Please see last images taken outdoors on an English summer afternoon.
Measuring: Diameter 3 inch (7.7 cm) by height 4.75 inch (12 cm).
Condition: Beautiful mellow color and a pleasing patina. Very old 1.5 inch vertical hairline crack to the side. Old 0.75 inch repair to section of the base, barely visible when on display.
