I have had several of these through the years. This one is walnut colored wood and is a typical cradle of the time period, likely the 20's. There is one ding on one end of the cradle but otherwise it is in great shape and would be perfect for a small bye-lo or small Dream Baby. It is 14.5" long, 6" high and 6" across. Because it is wood, it is not light and it would be cheapest to send it regular mail. There is a small satin blanket included.
