      "Maple, birch and pine, original red stained/painted finish, with a pull-out sewing slide with white porcelain pulls, turned and tapered legs, Sabbathday Lake, ME". This is a piece of specialty furniture the shakers made where the asymmetry serves a purpose in storage of sewing materials. Also the porcelain knobs are uncommon as it was usual for all knobs to be turned of a matching wood, this was probabl to call attention to the pull to highlight its functionality.
