Shaker Seed Packet Display Box #180-39 SOLD

Status: Sold
Description:
What a fantastic 1" scale replica of a real Shaker seed packet display box all hand done with hand painted labels and hand executed tiny seed packets which look like the real thing. I have shown numerous angles of this wonderful piece so that the reader can get an idea of the exquisite workmanship. Hand drawn labels are attached to the top, inside top and to the front panel and the top label has the additional wording Mount Lebanon, where the real Shakers were located. The interior has seed packet separators with 9 hand-made seed packets all illustrated with the vegetables including beets, peppers,carrots, pumpkins, etc. The packets are all removable as shown. This is an exact replica of the real shaker seed display cases as an authentic one can be seen in the last photo taken from Antiques & Auction News picturing a full size Shaker seed display box. The miniature is 2 1/4" long, 1 7/8" deep, and depth is 5/16". The box is marked on the bottom IL '78. Excellent condition. This item was in the former collection of Flora Gill Jacobs, the reknown miniature collector and author.
