Book Description

17 May 2013
Concentrating on pieces of treen related to eating and drinking, this book celebrates the range and richness of the turner's art from 1600 to 1900. It covers a wide range of objects for everyday use - goblets to nutcrackers, platters to lemon squeezers, and wassail bowls to egg cups. The book discusses the work of the 'jobbing' village turner or 'bodger' the skilled craftsman's workshop and the grand Court turner producing complex rose engine turning. It illustrates pieces only to be found in museums and examples you can find today in local antiques markets or fairs. Information is given on where treen may be seen and found and there is practical advice on pitfalls for the collector, dating and cleaning, as well as a chapter dealing with surfaces and patina and one asking for reader's help in identifying the purpose of some curious objects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 21 Aug 2011
Format:Hardcover
This is, as far as I know, the only source of colour images of antique treen. The text is concise and accurate, and honest. A pity that the late Dr Levi had not time for a larger work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and useful. 10 May 2013
Format:Hardcover
The most comprehensive, colour illustrated treen book available. I only wish I had been aware when a lot of his collection was sold! The pictures are stunning and accurate - make you want to handle each piece. A fitting tribute to a wonderful man.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal present for wide range of interests 27 April 2014
By Jane
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My husband, a C 17th historian, loves objects fashioned from wood, so this beautifully produced book with its clear text, made the ideal present. The illustrations are superb; the explanations ccompanying them , which make up much of the text, are very good. Great for lovers of wood, woodworking, art history/visual culture, and style.
