This large well made Georgian mahogany cradle has a detachable hood, and has retained a lovely mellow patina. It has been well designed with the lower sloping sides holding the baby snugly, whilst still allowing access for the baby to be picked up. The rocking motion is designed to be implemented by the foot of the nursemaid or governess, leaving their hands free for reading or sewing. The rounded ends of the rockers prevent the cradle rocking too far and tipping over. It dates from around 1780. Australian design rules prohibit this cradle from being used by a baby.
