This cradle was found in a barn many years ago , It is very ornate with all the square cut spindles which are placed diagonally . I see no nails and it seems to be all tongue and groove with very exact matches . It is 25" L 15"H at top of highest part 13" wide . Has two built in handles to carry it and it is quite heavy . The workmanship on this was made with a lot of love . It was found in Amish country but I have no idea what style to call it . I have never seen one so well done and each of the many many spindles placed sideways . The doll is for reference she is 16" tall .
If you know the style please feel free to comment .

    Help dating this one . No nails all fitted joints fhr and not even sure of wood . It appears hand made and the spindles are square cut set on diagonal .The wood base was missing so I just layed a thin board on bottom.
