S/4884 Antique Treen 19th Century Scottish Coggie
A fine example of an antique treen Scottish coggie, which was a large ceremonial vessel that would have been passed around from person to person, made from alternate staves of alder and sycamore and bound with willow. The alder was stained dark brown by steeping the wood in a peat bog. The staves are feathered together, producing a perfect and water tight fit. The base is inlaid with four alder joined hearts and the willow banding is finer than usual. The whole is in excellent condition and has an excellent colour and patination.
