Circa 1800 Large Trencher with Remnants of Original Brown Paint
A very early trencher that I have as circa 1800 but it is very possible that it is much older than that date. It is long and narrow with remnants of its original Spanish Brown paint on the two short ends of the trencher. It has two early repairs with one having totally disintegrated except for a couple of the nails that held it in place. The second metal plate repair can be easily seen on the underside of one of the short ends that stabilized that large crack. It is now tight and secure with the entire trencher now very light and dry. Hand carved from one one log, it is probably the most primitive trencher I have ever seen. Fill it with dried leaves, pumpkins, and other dried things for fall or evergreen boughs with Christmas balls, holly sprigs, dried pineapples and other holiday decorations for a real statement piece on a table, sideboard, or blanket chest this Christmas.
It is 32.5" long x 12" wide and stands 3.5" high.
