Mid 18th English Antique Treen Knitting Sheath Love Token Bearing The Name "Ann Hymers"

Information

A beautifully decorated mid-18thC English antique treen knitting sheath originating from North Shields, Northumberland, England.

Made as a love token.

Bearing the name Ann Hymers. 

Ann Hymers is recorded as marrying 30th Mar 1777 to John Robinson at Earsdon By North Shields,Northumberland, England.

The sheath is chip and scratch-carved incorporating rosettes and fish, the latter possibly indicating a link to the fishing trade based at North Shields. Also featuring flowers and foliage and a four-leaf shamrock is also scratch carved towards the tip - perhaps denoting Irish links to John Robinson and bringing Ann and John luck in their future together (a four-leaf shamrock is considered very rare and very lucky as opposed to the usual three leaved varieties that are more common place).

Whatever its story, this is a fabulous piece of period treen.

Condition - as per the images. Great colour and patination.
