condition: good
make / manufacturer: Automatic Cradle Mfg. Co.
size / dimensions: 42" L x 26" W x 31" H
Made by The Lullabye Automatic Cradle Manufacturing Company of Stevens Point, WI from 1904 to 1929. This cradle is from my wife's family and dates from approximately 1920.

The cradle is in good structural condition and the wood and joints are solid. Cradle will freely rock if manually operated but the crank to actuate the self-rocking mechanism seems to be stuck or over-tightened. I did not want to force it.

The finish is good for the age and appears to be original with some scuffs and checking. Cradle measurements are 42" L x 26" W x 31" H including the frame.

Cash only. Contact for additional details. Call/text six one 8-7 three one-87 one two. No email.
