Nice Old Cradle

Wanted to share this cradle we have in the shop with you, its a really early one, and its all hand dovetailed. In the one picture, you can see the dovetailing, and the scribe marks used to mark how deep to cut into the wood. What a nice piece of history.
If it could talk, I am sure it would have some tales to tell.

Love the cradle. The wood has so much character. I can only imagine how many sweet babies the caradle held. The hand grips made it easy to move around...don't see that often.

It is a really nice early cradle, and I know if it could talk, it would have wonderful stories to tell.
