I have this real Shaker firkin, it has a torn original paper label that is a bit unsightly and it didn't sell, so I put my hands to work and heart to God and added a few things just for me. I had some 1800s blue calico that I wrapped around the middle to cover the label, then put a Shaker seed label on. The label is new, but doesn't it look authentic? My apple core spool didn't sell either, so it is mine now too, and I love the milk paint I added. Those Shaker seed labels are my new "watch out or you'll get a label stuck on you" obsession, I'll have bunches of tins in the shop later. Still working on my red white and blues, hope I get done before July 4!
