John Bellamy, Masonic Folding Wall Shelf, Carved & Pierced Masonic Imagery, entire view 1

Measurement: Height: 18.75"; width: 10.5"; depth: 6"

Material: Walnut

Condition: Neat split at top long ago repaired with metal plate attached to back.
Loss to drop final device at base. Displays well.

Additional Information: Bellamy operated a workshop in the Masonic Hall,
Charlestown, Massachusetts employing his brother Elijah and several carvers. The
shop produced intricately carved shelves, frames, and other objects. This Masonic shelf
is accompanied by a letter in Bellamy’s hand from Charlestown (during John Bellamy’s
time in Charlestown) to his father in Kittery, Maine regarding his brother Elisha sending
him ten dollars. Bellamy signed his letter: In Haste, Your Son, John H. Bellamy. This
letter penned by John Bellamy early in his career at Charlestown demonstrates the
initial success producing Masonic shelves in Charlestown; also refers to his brother
Elisha, who was working with John producing Masonic shelves, clock hutches, frames,
etc.
