The first cradle measures just less than seven inches long by four inches tall. I know nothing about its history except that I purchased it on eBay a couple of years ago. The patina on this one is amazing and could only have come from years and years of cradling little dollies!
I purchased the second cradle on eBay as well but happily know a little more about its history. This one came from New York and once belonged to a 92 year old woman who had received it as a child. She inherited it from her mother who was most likely the original owner. It measures approximately six inches long by five inches tall and has been well taken care of through the years. The patina is simply wonderful and oh so warm.... I can only imagine how many happy dollies fell asleep in this cradle all those many years ago!
