Inspired by an original 1820's piece in the collection of the Museum, this piece is a hand-measured, hand-made reproduction down to the finest details, including pinned joinery, scribed mortises, mushroom-topped front posts, and filed slats. Made from authentically stained and sealed maple and ash, and seated with a natural rush bottom, the only significant difference between this chair as shown and the original is a slightly larger seat area.
Pieces crafted in this limited edition are available as shown, or in oiled cherry or walnut, and in any of the other standard seating options that we offer.
We are pleased to note that a substantial portion--nearly 30%--of the proceeds from each sale goes to the benefit of the Museum. This chair is an amazing challenge and honor to make, and we are incredibly thankful to the Shaker Museum | Mount Lebanon for this collaboration.
