The bottle green paint is fabulous, and it is stenciled on all sides in gold paint~ a star on both the head & the foot..
And the sides each have their own wonderful leaves. I bet these were made with a home made hand cut stencil...
There is just no comparison to the 'age' patina something of years acquires.
It came with its original little hand stitched straw filled tick, and two wee little pillows, all hand stitched in the weensiest of stitches~ with both their matching, removable pillow cases
Here it is in front of my life size real antique cradle, you can see how small it is, made for a very special dollye I'm sure. My cradle is from the late 1840's, early 1850's, and I have joyfully rocked all my little babes in it.
When I was sculpting her, I had my own 4 little babies in mind, all of them at once. I remembered what I adored and cherished most from the very first moment I set eyes on their little faces~ and it was their own little precious black beedy eyes looking up at me.
