Late 18th Century American Shaker Oak Grain Measure

SKU: TMIR000505 
  • Late 18th Century American Shaker Oak Grain Measure 


    A wonderful riven and steamed oak American Shaker grain measure which has had handles applied historically. The traditional Shaker nailed lap joints are quite a feat of craftsmanship given the thickness of the timber.  


    Whilst there is some wear to the lower part of the lap join this piece has its original base board and is structurally sound with a dry and untouched interior and underside. There are wonderful residual traces of an early blue paint on the surface. 

    A stunning and practical piece for a country house kitchen.
