European Antique 18th Century Hornbeam Treen Storage Vessel Barrel With Lid:
Height: 18 inches
Width: 8.5 inches (top) 9 inches (base)
An antique treen wooden storage vessel or barrel carved of a single piece of hornbeam. European in origin, according to the previous owner. Likely dates to the 18th century.
Patination and overall condition consistent with age, use, and handling. Loss of wood near the base, worm holes, a minor crack on the top rim, but none of these threaten the integrity of the piece.
The lid is firmly held in place with old fabric, and two beautifully chiseled square finger holes are on top. Handles on the side with bored holes for securing rope. A number of 'Xs' around the top half of the body. Please see photos for detail.
