An Early Tin Cradle

The tin cradle has a grain painted surface on the outside while the interior is painted an aqua blue. The hood on the cradle has the sides made so that it is all one piece cut from tin. Just the top of the hood is attached and there are not any nails. The tow rockers provide a movement that allows the baby to rock back and forth. I believe it is repainted but it still remains a very rare piece for an early dolls' house.
