Late 18th Century English Antique Treen Ale Jug of Large Proportions, circa 1780


To find an 18thC antique treen ale jug hewn and turned from a single piece of timber is rare, right down to the handle and spout.  To find an English one, well that makes this one even more special!

This jug has been made solely from one piece of timber. The handle and spout have been carved and not added.

With wonderful patination.

The jug is clearly influenced by those jugs of the period made in porcelain and referred to as "sparrow beaks" given the form of spout.

Condition - yes, it has an old metal repair to the right of the handle and the timber now has some age related splits (traces of an old hoop/strap are apparent from the oxidation marks left on the outer surface) however the form remains in tact.  This is a great piece of history.
