Lithograph "Shakers Near Lebanon,"

Auction: American Furniture & Decorative Arts - 2731M Location: Marlborough Date / Time: June 15, 2014 12:00PM


Lithograph "Shakers Near Lebanon," first half 19th century, showing lines of Shakers dancing in a Shaker building, with applied title below, sheet size 9 1/2 x 13 3/4 in.

According to Rob Emlen, an authority on the subject who was consulted in the cataloging of this print, of which there are at least 20 variants, this print is most likely related to one printed by Pendleton between 1829 and 1834, though that is impossible to prove. This determination is based on the appearance of pleats in the women's capes, the buttons and swallowtails on the men's frock coats, and the wording of the legend below.

Estimate $200-250
