Replica Shaker Table from the Collection of Marion B. Stroud
STARTING BID: $300
Fall in love with this special trestle table from the extensive collection of Marion B. Stroud. 10 feet long, 35.5 inches wide, and 28 inches tall, this warm dark walnut table is modeled on a Shaker form that was developed at Mount Lebanon and adopted at all of the Shaker communities. While the medieval trestle dining table had featured a floor-level horizontal stretcher, the residents of Mount Lebanon raised the horizontal stretcher, providing stability and allowing additional leg-room to accommodate more diners. This replica features three trestles and is a lovely example of the Shakers’ modified design.
Marion Boulton Stroud, “Kippy,” was the founder and director of The Fabric Workshop in Philadelphia as well as an international artistic think tank called the Acadia Summer Arts Program, “Kamp Kippy,” on Mount Desert Island Maine.
