Fabulous antique hand carved oak wood baby bassinet - cradle fit for a prince or princess. Very regal look with carving around all sides and the headboard is quite incredible. A very large, solid and heavy piece with slates on the bottom that support a piece of ply and there are two mattresses. Everything has been cleaned and sanitized but you'd probably want to do it again.
CONDITION: Excellent antique condition with only some bumps and bruises as would be expected. Can be oiled to bring out wood luster. The cap on the top is loose but intact and needs some glue but I don't like messing with things. Not sure of the wood. Lady from whom I bought it said it was walnut but I think it too light for that.
SIZE: 39 inches long, bed area 18 inches wide, 20 inches wide with frame. Foot board is 21 inches high and the headboard is 32 inches high.

Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
From the first time I watched a classic movie as a young girl, and watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
