Wooden vessels for use in the home

Turned wooden bowls, plates, cups and grinding mortars, often called ‘treen ware’, were the staple kitchen and dining ware of the poorer classes, who could not afford metal or glass. Although a natural and relatively cheap ware, these items can be very attractive. Like leather, medieval wooden objects only survive in very wet conditions in England.
