Acquired from a Penobscot Native American, Circa 1904.
This cradleboard was a gift to Agnes Aignes for her newborn baby in 1904. The Aignes' owned a hunting camp and game store on leased land from the tribe. It was actually used by three (3) generations of the family until the 1960's. We believe the basket part to be made of willow, the padding is deerskin, the straps, unfortunately, are no longer attached. The entire unit is in excellent condition, and could even be used today. Ironically, the tribes seldom have these to use, they have embraced car seats and other modern carriers. These cradleboards are now found in museum collections.
Condition: Museum Quality
Material: Wood, Willow, Deerskin
Measurements: 27.25 inches tall, 17 inches wide
