SET OF 3 SHAKER STYLE FINGER-LAPPED OVAL BOXES
A set of 3 graduated sized Shaker style cherry finger-lapped bentwood boxes. These are handmade by soaking the wood in hot water and then bending the wood around a wooden mold to dry. The fingers are secured with copper brads which line up perfectly including the ones on the lid. The 2 smaller ones have 4 finger laps, the largest has 5. Condition is great with no cracks or chips. The smallest one has a bit of a dark area on one end of the lid (see photo). I bought these in Massachusetts in 1977. Approximate sizes in inches:
1) 12.875” W. x 5.0” H. x 9.625” D.
2) 11.5” W. x 4.5” H. x 8.5” D.
3) 9.875” W. x 4.0” H. x 6.75” D.
