Circa 1900.  Charming Folk Art cradle.  This antique crib is both a work of art and a completely usable piece of fine furniture.  The large bed features a nicely shaped top rail and carved spindles, which fit into a framework also turned and spindled.

The cradle may be rocked in this frame or held in place by a removable  spindle which is the only replaced piece of wood on this fine antique. All original cradle and frame, latter removable solid mattress support.  Old re-gluing and minor repair.
