Measuring over 21 feet in length, this dining table is attributed to the Shaker Village in Canterbury, New Hampshire. It is a rare survival of Shaker furniture as most surviving tables of this type were shortened at a later date to make them more usable and versatile. This table, or a nearly identical 21 ½’ example, was deaccessioned by Winterthur Museum, having been sold to Henry Francis du Pont by Edward Ford of Marshfield, Massachusetts, who acquired it from the Shakers at Canterbury in the late 1920s.1  Another was made at the Canterbury Shaker Village and remains there today. The form is similar to that made by Shakers at the Mount Lebanon Village.
