Is Shaker Furniture
- Shaker furniture is a distinctive style of furniture developed by the United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing (aka Shakers), a religious sect founded by Jane and James Wardley. They came to America from Manchester, England in 1774 led by Mother Ann Lee.
Double Case of Drawers, ca. 1825
Double Case of Drawers, North Family, Mount Lebanon, NY, ca. 1825: Pine, cherry knobs, bone escutcheon, red wash. This case of drawers communicates fundamental attributes about Shaker belief and daily life. The uniform size and egalitarian arrangement of the drawers speaks to the communistic nature of a Shaker family. Only one decoration on this 16-drawer case lacks tacit connection to its storage role- the plain molding nailed to the top. All other forms and embellishments answer directly to the function: the drawers are arranged in two rows and occupy the entire height and width of the case, the red paint seals and protects the pine, and the bone escutcheon on the top left drawer shields the drawer from scratches from the key.
Counter, ca. 1815
Counter, Church Family, Canterbury, NH, ca. 1815: Pine, cherry knobs, iron hinges, blue and orange paint. There are four elements that make the appearance of this counter extraordinary- its dark blue and bittersweet-orange paint, its asymmetrical arrangement of drawers and cupboard, its unusually high work surface, and use of single pulls on its drawers. Had the cabinetmaker followed more common choices, the counter would have been a much more ordinary piece of furniture.
