This little box was created by the Shakers of Sabbathday Lake, Maine and has their trademark on the base. It is of finely woven poplar edged with what appears to be fine leather. The pink bows and lining are of silk and the box includes a flap section on the outside of the lid which reveals a fabric needle case and inside the box is the remains of an attached waxer. It still retains its original fine cord and button for closure. The poplar is in good condition for age although the edging is significantly perished. Despite this, this is a lovely example of this typical style of folk art created by the Shaker people for “The World”. Length 3.25 ins (8.5cm), width 4.5 ins (11.75cm), depth 2 ins (5cm). Weight 68 grams. This item can be seen in the book, "Antique Boxes, Inside and Out", on page 332.
