Two Oval Shaker Boxes


Two oval 3-fingered Shaker boxes with lids.

Both boxes are in excellent condition. The larger box retains the original color on the lid. A penciled inscription in fancy script on the underside of the lid reads, “Presented by Elder Richard Bushnal (sic)”. We believe the name "Bushnal" on the inscription is a misspelling of "Bushnell". Elder Richard Bushnell,  (1791-1873), was an important figure in the Shaker community of New Lebanon, NY.
