Description:

Shaker Oval Covered Box, possibly Daniel Crosman, New Lebanon, New York, c. 1840, pine top and bottom with bent maple sides joined with three fingers fastened with round-headed copper tacks, brown stained surface, (minor losses), ht. 1 7/8, wd. 2 3/4, lg. 4 1/2 in.

The use of round-headed copper tacks to secure the fingers may indicate the box's maker as Daniel Crosman (1810-1885), a skilled box maker at the New Lebanon, New York, community.

Estimate $600-800

Missing three copper tacks or pegs: two on the cover rim and one near the bottom.
