Recent Finds:  Tiny 19th Century Treen Covered Spice Jar
A turned object this small was intended to hold something costly. Without the cover most would refer to this as a "salt"... which is possible as many salt vessels had covers originally. I believe any seasoning would apply and I shudder to think of the probability of the cover being retained for the last 175 years!
Very good antique condition; some very tight hairlines. The burnished surface glows with the lanolin of a thousand fingers.
American, ca. 1850
