This comprehensive reference documents the full scope of furniture from Shaker communities in New England, Ohio, and Kentucky. Furniture produced throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, ranging from free-standing tables, chairs, desks, boxes, and case clocks to built-in cupboards and cases of drawers, is shown in over 1,000 images, 698 in color. An extensive text provides a detailed account of Shaker history, culture, and religion. Further, it examines Shaker design and tools, reporting new research on the Shaker color palette. Using primary source materials, this book examines designs from specific Shaker communities and individual cabinetmakers. Endnotes, bibliography, glossaries, and technical terms make this beautiful reference required reading for everyone with an interest in Shaker design and culture.
