Please Note: this carrier is being sold at a discount because of a minor cosmetic defect. I had a large order for these carriers and made several extras. These ones have slight cosmetic imperfections that do not affect their overall durability. 

This size #0 Shaker carrier in a yellow milk paint finish is 3 ½” Long by 2” Wide by 1” Tall (3 ¾” to top of handle).

A tiny carrier perfect for holding a special piece of jewelry or other keepsake. During the holiday season, these carriers make unique Christmas tree ornaments! They're also great for various craft and needlework projects, such as making pin cushions or using them in felting projects.

Construction:

  • Materials: The side of the carrier is constructed from maple or birch, the bottom board from quarter-sawn pine and the handle from ash. All lumber is milled at our shop here in Embden, Maine.
  • Hand-Cut Joints: Each swallowtail joint is individually hand-cut by Robert LeHay, ensuring each piece is unique.
  • Fasteners: The band and bottom board is secured with copper tacks made on original 19th-century machines.
  • Finish Options: Available in a variety of milk paint and natural finishes. All painted pieces receive two coats of a high-quality tung oil finish, while natural finish carriers receive five coats. This oil finish ensures that the carrier is well protected and the finish will only get better with age.
  • Aged Appearance: Copper tacks are darkened to provide a vintage look. Following tradition, the bottom of painted pieces is left unpainted, then dyed and oiled to provide an aged patina.
