Sweetpea Cottage is offering you the opportunity to obtain a wonderful miniature cradle made in the Brittany style. For years, the people in the Brittany (or Bretagne) region of France supplemented their income with a home-based industry by making wooden items for sale to tourists. These pieces were always characterized with a traditional style that included chip carving, some stamped designs, and spindle rails. This cradle is no exception. It measures a total of 7 3/8 inches long, a little over 4 inches wide, and is about 4 7/8 inches tall. It is in wonderful condition, clearly having been taken care of over the years. The sides and ends have traditional stamped designs with spindle rails running around the top of all sides. On the bottom there are two cheese-cutter rails. On the underside there is an impressed mark that says "Fabrication Francaise" along with a logo that is hard to decipher. The only damage on the piece occurs on the rockers where the ends have chipped off along with a small split in one rocker and some wear on the bottom. Other than that, the rest of the cradle is in extremely good condition. The collector of miniature furniture will love this item and anybody interested in French folk art should have a piece of Brittany furniture. It would also look great in your doll collection!
