$115.00 each

To me, this is the meaning of folk art: art woven into design and manufacture, givng a strictly utililtarian piece beauty, in addition to function.  Such can be said of most Shaker pieces, and this is one of them.  A comb entirely hand made, carved out of maple and preserved perfectly.  The round combs were often stored in pairs, with the prongs of one nested within the prongs of another.  Can you imagine the good care (not to mention good luck) this comb has had, to have remained in its original pristine fdfgfdcondition for so many generations?  This is one of the reasons I love Shaker - Made To Last.  2" diameter; stands 1" high.
