Original antique painted Tyrolean cradle
H. 55cm – L. 90cm – P. 70cm
Rare old Tyrolean cradle in soft wood.
On the whole surface there are floral decorations and apotropaic symbols. At the ends, two medallions are painted, one depicting the Madonna and Child, the other the Pentacle, both symbols of protection for the newborn.
On the sides, there are knobs on which, originally, a cord was passed through with which to cradle the newborn.
In addition to its original use, this cradle lends itself perfectly to becoming a unique piece of furniture with different uses: it can, for example, be used to hold decorative dried flowers or fabrics.
Object not yet restored; it is possible to customize the desired degree of restoration, thanks to the intervention of our laboratory.
Tyrol, early 19th century.
