Offered today is a RARE Alfred Maine Shaker Oval 3 finger Pantry box in UNTOUCHED Original "Meetinghouse" Blue paint!!! Rare small size measuring 5-1/4" long x 3-7/8" deep x 1-1/2" high. Wonderful survivor in mint condition with NO chips/cracks/repairs/touchups. None!!! Meetinghouse blue paint is original and untouched with a later, probably victorian coat of shellac, which helped preserve the original painted surface. The coat of shellac has darkened over time, and flakes off easily with your fingernail(see pic #2). I decided to leave the box in its untouched as found state and leave it as an option for the new owner to remove or not.Note the unusually long fingers and the pointed ends!,attributes to the Alfred community. Copper tacks and wooden pegs used in construction. Original scribe lines inside top and inside bottom. Maple sides with pine top and bottom.Age appropriate wear and dating 1870-90. Discovered a few years ago 5 miles down the road from the Alfred Shaker community, I have no doubt that it originated from that community. Obviously a treasured heirloom with its remarkable state of preservation. When is the last time you had the chance to purchase an original oval Shaker box in ORIGINAL blue paint? when will there be another opportunity? Worthy of the finest Shaker/folk art/americana collection! As nice and clean, "Right as rain", of a pantry box as you will find! Guaranteed as Represented. Shipping of $20.00 includes insurance...no guessing. SEE OTHER LISTINGS THIS WEEK FOR MORE QUALITY AMERICANA!
