The land in America is abundant, no doubt about that.
Early in the 19th century the United States started to find it’s identity.
Immigrants, stragglers, hustlers, and revelers looking to answer this thing we call Life.
Ready to grab it by the horns, and ride it to death, laughing in victory.
Jelly Cupboards and Cabinets became a household staple to our early pilgrimage.
The popularity of the item grew from New England, spreading as far West it could.
It wasn’t a hard sales pitch.
By 1830, everyone seemed to be eating jelly.
Grape, Mint, even Jalapeno jelly in the Southwest would find storage in the kitchen.
At Manchester Wood we participate in the tradition of Jelly Cabinets, and are proud to offer these pieces, a part of early American culture.
