Finished oval boxes

 

Shaker Workshops Finished Oval Boxes
# 10 - $32.00
# 9 - $35.00
# 8 - $37.50

These Shaker oval boxes are reproductions of the original forms and templates used at the Mt. Lebanon, New York Shaker community during the mid-19th century. Like the Shakers, these are produced in eleven different sizes and Shaker Workshops uses the original Shaker numbering system (No. 11 being the smallest box and No. 1 being the largest box). These oval boxes feature uniformly slender sides, symmetrical joints, and neat, tight-fitting lids.

Made from select Pennsylvania cherry, secured by copper tacks. Tops and bottoms are fastened with wooden pegs. We hand rub them with several coats of oil finish and buff them until they "glow". The Shakers used oval boxes for sewing and quilting notions and for kitchen dry goods.
