Originally from the region of Savoie, France, near the Swiss border, this mid-nineteenth century hand carved walnut cradle rests on two scrolled rockers. Wooden knobs on each side of the cradle were originally used to attach leather straps that secured the baby inside when the cradle was placed in a carriage traveling over bumpy roads. The baby was protected from the sun by means of a light fabric laid over the two wide bentwood slats. A custom metal plant tray was added in the twentieth century for the family to use the cradle as a jardiniere or planter. A rare, original piece made by a French father for his baby, c. 1860.
