This is a stunning piece of treen which could be used for many things. I have photographed it with a few uses to give scale as well as ideas.
The surface has been well worn and as a result, has a beautifully smooth patina from years of use.
The form has been hollowed out from a log of wood which can be seen from the gauge marks on the inside. The back has then been shaped into the triangle and added to the back surface to sit against the wall. There are no hooks or holes in it for hanging, so would be a worktop item.
From the base to the top of the bowl part measures 10cm and to the top of the back measures 23cm. It is one of those items you cant fully appreciate until you are holding it.
It is difficult to age as it is a rustic, homemade item, but going by the colour of the wood and the quality of the surface, it must be at least 19th century.
The price includes postage to the UK.

I started collecting antiques over 40 years ago, bunking school to go to Leicester antiques market on a Thursday lunchtime. My first passion was with small engraved Edwardian glasses which I could pick up for 5-15p each.   

40 years later and having spent 30 years teaching design and then another 4 years in my vintage tea rooms, all the while collecting all sorts of vintage and antique pieces, I decided I would start to sell some of the beautiful items I as picking up. 

I visit France several times a year and love to bring back quirky furniture, kitchenalia or a beautiful weathered confit pot. However, when travel is limited, I scour the UK for those unusual items. If there is a particular item, I can help you find in France, then don’t hesitate to ask. 

I trade from a wonderful antiques emporium near Faversham called Wildwinds which has over 20 dealers and often appears on ‘Antiques Road Trip’. Items can be viewed there or from my home in South East London. Although I don’t have a website, I use Instagram regularly and have a Facebook page. 

You can often find me at Detling antiques fair, weather permitting, where I love to talk to my customers helping them find the perfect piece.
