What can be more fascinating than the Norwegian bentwood box, also known as the Tine - pronounced “Teen-Ah.” There are many uses for these boxes such as, butter and cheese containers and even lunch boxes. With these and so many other uses I bet you can come up with a unique idea that will make this an heirloom piece…so get started now!
"Tine” is a Norwegian word with historical resonance, describing a bentwood box used in the 17th century and later for carrying and storing food, primarily butter and cheese. Maybe you have a unique idea as to the use or is there a special person in your thoughts that would love this piece?
Keeping with the tradition of the tine as a place to store items, I designed this mini version as a treasure room for that very special something. Have you got an idea of what special treasure you could house in there? You know the wedding/anniversary season is always upon us and how special it would be to surprise that special someone with a beautifully embellished tine and the surprise that waits inside.
