An Exquisite Cradle 
It has been a long time since I have one of these to sell! The cradle is suspended between two stands which have hooks on them so that the cradle actually swings. The delicate tiny spindles are all intact along the sides of the cradle. The ends of the cradle and the stands that support the cradle have fancy raised designs of scroll work. Underneath the cradle is a decorative bar that attaches both stands in order to keep the whole cradle in balance. Some bedding in a beige coverlet and fancy lace pillow are set inside the cradle. The soft metal is painted in asphaltum which is a brown wash. A beautiful piece in a bedroom or nursery.
Measurements: 3-3/4" h. from tallest point on the stands on the ends. x 3-5/8" long x 1-5/8" w.
Circa: 19th Century
Price: SOLD
