The Shakers have cultivated their land since 1783. The hedgerows are piled with stones picked from the croplands each spring. These naturally beautiful food slabs are created from polished slices of Shaker fieldstones deposited in the earth by glaciers eons ago. No two stones are alike and each provides a striking presentation for beverages, sliced cheese, hors d’oeuvres, meat, fruit, bread, and more. Also use as a trivet, under potted plants, and atop vanities for soap, cosmetics and more. Slabs are typically multicolor with striking combinations of minerals. Stamped on the reverse with the name: “Shaker Village, New Gloucester, ME.”
Produced for Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village by American Stonecraft in Lowell, MA.
You will receive the exact slab pictured here.
Measures approximately 13″ at longest length. Very nice glossy surface that reflects you perfectly- as you can see in the first photo! A gorgeous serving piece or the best charcuterie board- just pop it in the freezer before using to keep your cheese cold.
