Product Description:

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 oval boxes feature uniformly slender sides, symmetrical joints and neat, tight-fitting lids.

They are handcrafted with Pennsylvania cherry, and secured by copper tacks. The tops and bottoms are fastened with wooden pegs, and are hand rubbed with several coats of oil finish and buffed until they "glow". But the insides are unfinished. The Shakers used oval boxes for sewing and quilting notions and for kitchen dry goods. Today, their uses are unlimited. These boxes are made in the USA.
