Description: This is an antique New England Shaker hand turned paint decorated rug whip from Mount Lebanon Community, New York circa 1890s for your consideration. The "Shaker Rug Whip" was not a Shaker invention, their role was refining it. A non-Shaker named Charles Comstock patented one style a softwood handle with steam bent cane (rattan) in 1898, and assigned the manufacturing rights to the North Family at Mount Lebanon. There, under the direction of Brother Levi Shaw (1819 - 1908), the community made whips between 1898 and the first years of the twentieth century. The Shaker rug whip has a hand turned handle made of solid piece of cherry wood. The whip is steam bent cane that is inserted into the handle and attached with square nails. One side of the handle has minor imperfection where the square nail has gone missing. A replacement nail was added to strongly secure the whip to the handle as an early repair. This does not diminish the character and adds to the authenticity of this used household item. The antique New England Shaker rug whip is strong and sturdy. One side of the handle is painted with the Shaker Canterbury red paint that would be displayed when hanging on the wall.
Condition Report: Excellent condition other then already described and has an age appropriate patina.
Dimensions: 36 inches long, and 12 inches wide.
