Wicker Work Rocking Cradle. English, Norfolk. c.1810/20  Mahogany and Wicker. sold with provenance. £895

 

In superb condition, this wonderful piece of English Furniture is sold with a newspaper article from c.1990 detailing the ownership of the cradle since the 19th Century. According to the article it was used by at least 16 babies from 1931 and many more prior to this.  The cradle is of solid manufacture and high-quality materials, producing a truly beautiful object of great design.  Rare to find in such a complete state and with such excellent provenance.  One very small area of damage to the wicker, about 3cm in length, otherwise in fantastic condition.
