One of the nicer Staffordshire Baby-in-Cradle figures I have ever handled, this Pearlware example has green basket weave highlights on the sides and the bonnet, and a crisply molded baby (facial features are very pronounced) wearing a gown decorated in Pratt Colors (green and mustard polka dots) and lying on a mustard blanket. The cradle sits on 2 rockers. It is 5" long, 2" wide and about 3" to the top of the bonnet. Excellent condition with no chips, cracks, repairs, etc. (the vertical lines on the sides are mold marks).

These Staffordshire Babies-in-Cradle date c. 1800. There were used as christening gifts when friends and relatives came to visit the newborn, and I am sure most were given to the kids to play with when they got older. No wonder so few have survived!
