Pin McIntire Sheaf of Wheat


Sheaf of Wheat 

from the collection of the 

Peabody Essex Museum

During the Federal era, renowned Salem, Massachusetts, architect and master woodcarver Samuel McIntire (1757-1811) defined many of the symbols of his young nation. This elegant sheaf of wheat, a symbol of prosperity both then and now, is from McIntire's 1804 Gardner-Pingree House, part of the Peabody Essex Museum. Working in the neoclassical style, McIntire employed a variety of decorative devices, such as baskets of fruit and sheaves of wheat. The sheaf of wheat as a decorative motif draws its roots from Greek and Roman mythology.
