This is a very rare and beautiful piece of antique Dutch art.
It is a little doll cradle, really gorgeous all hand craft-man ship.
The cradle is handpainted in a old fashioned way,in the red "Rembrand" colours, with the rules of the colours that has be used in that period. It is about 1895.
The colours of this cradle are amazing, that intense "Rembrandt" Red, the flowers in yellow-gold , black and brown.... The Guirlandes all around the craddle in the same intricate colours.
Inside the craddle is black. It is amazing to see the beauty of art what is used, to design such a piece of Dutch folk art.
In my opinion this craddle is a so called "Masterpiece".
Students on this school of Folk art, has to make 1 piece in a tiny size to show their high hand craftmanship if they wanted their official" Diplome d'Honneur" of being a Master.
Alright, it is in two pieces, a platform also wonderful painted with flowers and guirlandes, and the lovely cradle. It has 4 feets, to stand on.
The craddle stands between two little wooden pieces, they are on the platform.
The platform stands 20 cm or 8 cm wide.
The craddle is also from 2 widest points 20 cm or 8 Inches.
