SOLD! A Quaint Addition to Your Kitchen, Pantry, Mudroom… An Amish-Crafted Jelly Cabinet

Posted by Susan Berge, Editorial Assistant

Constructed by Amish craftsmen, specializing in wood furniture, jelly cabinets were usually made of wood and sporting multiple, shallow shelves to hold jarred goods. Jam cupboards were found in many American households. Using a jelly cupboard during the 19th century entailed placing the jam and jelly jars inside to ensure proper storage.

This piece is marked, “Amish crafted” and “Borkholder”

As you can see, it needs some TLC but if you choose to refurbish the piece, it will be an awesome addition to your household.

Condition:   Structurally, it’s in very good, used condition. Visually, you’ll see there are significant water stains, although they don’t detract from the cabinet’s usability.

Dimensions:  48″ high x 26″ wide x 14 1/2″ deep

FIRM Price:  $115.00, plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $6.33, for a total of $121.33. 

You can pay with PayPal using the blocks at the end of this page.  (We’re still working out the bugs, so bear with us, please!)
