Water and Bretheren's Bath Houses, Pleasant Hill Shaker Village by Robert Dalrymple

We missed the May Shaker Auction at Willis Henry! It has been saved on our favorites bar for months, so when we looked last night to remind ourselves of the date....it had passed. A look through the lots, as expected, inspired us to no end. Masters of design and craftsmanship unparalleled economy of line and luxury of material.
