Original Old Paint
Country Primitive Antique Doll Cradle
Found in Lancaster County Pennsylvania, an antique primitive childs doll cradle with original paint.
A most delightful old dolls cradle. The original old paint decorated finish is oxidized, well leathered, chippy and quite worn away here and there. It's seen a great deal of use over the past 100 years + , but still in good solid condition.
You can just imagine the delight of the first little girl that was given this by her father who lovingly created this darling cradle. Painted a deep green with pink flower sprays on either side and fancy line painting. The interior is a bittersweet. Many little girls have played with it since and while it shows plenty of wear to the old paint it still is a delightful toy. A little handmade homespun linen mattress accompanies the cradle.
No excuses ... lots of wear overall, it has been well loved and well used.
Lapped and nailed construction.
This will fit a good sized doll the base of the interior measures 15" long x 6-1/4" wide.
Overall Size: 18" long x 13-3/4" across the rockers x 11" high at the headboard.
A Delightful Country Primitive Antique Doll Cradle!
A few shrinkage lines here and there and one of the rockers has an old repair,
but it is still sturdy and strong with no looseness anywhere.
Old dry finish to the paint, displays wonderful authentic wear (see all of our images).
