Vintage Antique 19th Century Sieve Hand Made Shaker Primitive Folk Art Cookware:
This is what I believe to be a Shaker sieve, made from a soft wood and horsehair. It is in remarkable original condition, and measures 3 1/2"h x 8" in diameter. It is in two parts, as shown. I bought it years ago, not really knowing much about it but feeling as if it were a special object, and honestly that situation has not changed much since then! I am not an expert on Shaker design and objects, but I do respect and admire the simplicity and perfection of their work.If you google "shaker horsehair sieve" you will see similar pieces that sold anywhere from $75 to $475. Please make up your own mind on this - I am not representing it as anything beyond the description and photos.
