An outstanding pine cradle on a trestle base of oak and beechwood, in almost entirely original condition. Operating the treadle gives a gentle swinging motion to the cradle; when stationary a wooden peg holds the cradle still. Five of the six turned wooden knobs on the top rails are barely noticeable replacements. One of the original iron suspension hooks is broken and has been reinforced with a perfectly stabile but improvised repair. The original slatted floor of the cradle has been replaced with a board from reclaimed pine.
Austria, circa 1875
