SHAKER-STYLE Oval Box with Swallow Tail Joints
A beautiful SHAKER-STYLE OVAL BOX is expertly crafted using Shaker techniques including swallowtail joints and fastening the lap-sided bands with copper tacks. Great size to hold keepsakes or sewing supplies.
The oval shaped box is stained in a dark natural antique finish and measures 8 ⅜” by 5 ⅝” across the bottom and 3 ¼” high. The lid is also constructed using lap-sided bands and copper tacks and fits tightly on top of the carrier.
One of the tacks have slipped through the band on lid so it is loose from the bottom--possibly which can be repaired. See last image.
Shaker boxes remain popular with collectors including reproductions such as these.
Thank you for visiting THE TOWNHOUSE ANTIQUES & VINTAGE.
We strive to provide you the best in antique, collectibles and vintage items and do our best to provide you within the written description as much information, whether it’s the history, manufacturer or condition, for each item we sell.
However, we also recognize that a “picture is worth a thousand words” and ask that you view the photos we provide as well. Often, a photo can be more effective than a written description when determining if an item will meet your needs and satisfaction.
