Cherry Oval Shaker Boxes - Winter Production Pre-order
We are excited to again make our Shaker Oval Boxes, Serving Trays, and Carriers available, and are now taking pre-orders for our Winter production run (scheduled to start in January 2024).
First shipments are then anticipated to begin by mid February, in the order in which orders are received.
Depending on demand, we may close this pre-order window at any time...so order early if you don't want to risk missing out!
We make our Shaker oval boxes on reproductions of the original forms and templates used at the Mt. Lebanon, New York Shaker community during the mid-19th century. Like the Shakers, we produce our oval boxes in eleven different sizes and we use the original Shaker numbering system (No. 11 being the smallest box and No. 1 being the largest box). And, like the Shakers, our oval boxes feature uniformly slender sides, symmetrical joints, and neat, tight-fitting lids.
We handcraft them of select cherry, secured by copper tacks. Tops and bottoms are fastened with wooden pegs. The exteriors are finished in satin lacquer; insides are unfinished. The Shakers used oval boxes for sewing and quilting notions and for kitchen dry goods. Today, their uses are unlimited.
Before ordering, please review important information regarding lead times and shipping charges, as well as our returns and exchange policy. Please take special note that cancelled pre-ordered box orders are only eligible for a store credit.
