Treen is the name given to wooden objects made for eating and drinking. This book celebrates the range and richness of the wood turner's art from 1600 to 1900. It is organized by genre rather than chronologically, with richly illustrated chapters on cups, goblets and other drinking vessels, salt and spice containers, spoons, platters, dishes and bowls, including rustic examples from village turners as well as pieces of the highest quality by master craftsmen.
