Title    Two Antique birch Treen needle cases. One in the form of a lighthouse the other as a mushroom


Description

Often referred to treen the making or small ornate wooden objects for household use, these two collectable needle cases or trinket boxes are made from solid birch. One is in the shape of a lighthouse complete with enhanced lense. The turned top unscrews from its tapering base to reveal a hollowed out needle case inside.

The second is in the shape of a mushroom, the top ideal as support for embroidery. The handle is engraved with a leafy branch and the words "Himmelbjerget" or Sky Mountain. It is one of the highest geological peaks in Denmark and has been a tourist destination for centuries. The top of the mushroom can be pulled off the base to reveal a needle case hollowed out inside.

Title Very rare Swedish mangle board in solid oak 18th century

Dimensions

overall Height 10 cm

Length 81cm

Width 17


Description

Original Swedish mangle board used to dry and flatten linen without ironing. Traditionally these types of boards were made for by the groom who would give this to his bride as a mark of honour. Unusual that this is made of a single piece of solid oak . Even the craved handle and raised section underneath has all been carved from one block, indicating the groom's dedication to his bride to be.  Nice original patina and restrained design.

A hand wrought iron hook at the top allows for traditional hanging for display.  Even rarer is that the oak is nice and smooth and not covered in later applied carved and painted designs.

Wet Linen would be wrapped around a large rolling pin and the mangleboard would move over back and forth, smoothing the linen and flattening it nicely.

 


Swedish 18th century or earlier.
