Skinner Auctioneers, in Marlborough, Mass., has an astounding collection of Shaker pieces from the Andrews Shaker Collection up for sale in a June 15 auction.
Unfortunately, the pieces to which I am particularly drawn are estimated to go for far more than my car would be worth brand new – bells, whistles, undercoating and extended warranty included. So, I’m looking at the pieces in this auction as a source of inspiration, and encourage you to do the same. Click through the link above to take a look.
p.s. We recently collected 31 Shaker pieces from the magazine into one book: “Shaker Furniture Projects.” (Perhaps in a future edition you’ll see a piece or two inspired by the Andrews Collection…I quite like the “pan” cupboard, schoolhouse cupboard and loom bench.)
