A curious piece of treen.  Basically this is a piece of hardwood turned to form a vertical tube, with a wider

base and a shaped cap.  The height is 98 mm (including cap), and the base is 39 mm in diameter.  Inside 

this tube is a small spool to accept three lengths of thread.  This spool is much smaller than the interior

and it is possible that it formed part of a small etui (with needles and probably a thimble missing).  

However much the most interesting feature is the decoration around the centre of the tube.  This appears

to have been carved with grapes and leaves from a thin piece of a lighter wood, which has then been wrapped

 around the tube to give a three-dimensional effect (Photos 3 and 4).  Remarkably this onlay is intact, and 

gives a pleasing effect.  The skill involved suggests this may have come from the Black Forest.  An unusual 

piece.
