S/4694 Antique Treen Early 19th Century Scottish Vessel in the Manner of a Coggie
A most attractive Scottish vessel in the manner of the bicker/coggie family, having sides with alternate staves of sycamore and alder, that have been steeped in a peat bog to stain them dark brown. These are all feathered together in a most intricate fashion and the whole is bound with willow in the usual manner. The false bottom contains peas or similar objects, which when shaken make a rattling sound to gain attention. This is a really fine example and of exceptionally rich colour with an excellent patination.
