Antique Collector - Miscellaneous Antiques


Miscellaneous Antiques and Treen.
A vast range of objects are gathered under the general heading of 'Treen'. Strictly speaking this means; Cookware, tableware, or eating utensils made of wood and other wooden objects which cannot be described as furniture. Apple and pear wood tea caddies are perhaps the best know examples of early treen.
Bottles have become a very affordable collecting area and English examples exist which date back to the mid 17th century. The market is also growing for early electrical domestic wares as many households had power by the turn of the last century.

This section will likely cover many areas of collecting, such as; music, musical instruments and chime boxes, gramophones, sports equipment, hobbies, fishing, football, leatherware, pencils, pens and penknives, which as their name suggests, were originally used to reshape quill pen tips.
