Description

Shaker Locked Model Cherry Wood Blanket Chest

Dimensions in inches:
Whole box 10 tall
Lid 15 1/4 x 7 1/4
Base 8 x 15 3/4
Box 6 1/2 deep inside in the middle
Main box 14 3/4 x 7 x 6 7/8
Small inside box 4 1/4 x 5 7/8 x 3 1/2

This chest has a colorless varnish that emphasizes the natural grain of the wood. The finish reflects the general American preference for natural wood in the late 19th and 20th centuries, which the Shakers shared. This chest was found in Shaker children's rooms. You could use yours for storing your daughter's favorite doll's things. Each chest has a well sized bottom area for storage that could accommodate doll dresses and a second upper compartment for their accessories. This chest would be perfect for a locked jewelry box, small toy storage, or art supply storage. It can also be used in your dinning or living room as well as in the entrance way of your home to collect small odds and ends.


Who were the Shakers?

The Shakers who began their history in Manchester, England in the mid-18th century, practiced their beliefs in communities where members devoted themselves to work and worship. Shaker craftsmen and craftswomen incorporated their principles into their work: durability, simplicity, utility, perfection, grace. Their communal lifestyle freed them from the economic pressures of life experienced by craftsmen in the world; therefore, in such an atmosphere the finest work was expected and accomplished.
