Shaker Society Village Community Antique Vintage 1th Century Antique Kitchen Dry Measure Dipper - Large Maple Wood - Mount Lebanon, New York Shaker Community, 19th Century

Shaker Society Village Community vintage 19th Century antique kitchen dry measure dipper - hand-crafted moulded maple with turned handle with pine bottom. Hand-molded maple vessel fastened together with copper brads measures 7-1/4" in diameter x 4-1/2" high. This large dipper and handle measure 14" to the tip of the handle.

Dippers were used to measure dry products. Making dippers was a Shaker craft similar to oval box-making. Both processes involved a meticulous soaking or steaming of strips of wood until it was flexible enough to bend around a mold.

Came from a private Boston collection sold at auction in New Lebanon, NY in 2002. It still has its natural finish. A very lovely piece.
