Shaker Roundstand Raffle

Rd Std #1As I  mentioned in the May post,  the Sabbathday Lake Shakers and Friends of the Shakers are raising funds to upgrade the library vault, storage areas and preservation of important manuscripts.

I’ve donated this reproduction of the rarest of Shaker round stands, a ca. 1830 design.  Only one  is known to exist in the collection of the American Museum in Bath, England.It has been described as “the finest stand  (made) in America.”  Solid black cherry, hand dovetailed, with a tapered and flared post, round support collar, metal spider underneath, and it comes with a 20013 Silver Eagle.

Raffle tickets are $3.00 each, or 4 for $10.00, checks payable to the United Society of Shakers,  707 Shaker Rd., New Gloucester, ME 04260 ,  Attention: Anniversary campaign.  Here is your opportunity to have a chance to own a Becksvoort piece for only $10.,  and  support the Shakers at the same time.  What could be better?  C.
