Eclectic Cradles And Bassinets

This is called a "ghodiyu"...Indian and Pakistani babies sleep in them, instead of bassinets. This one is very modern. In India, they are basically a baby hammock, made from a thin cotton sheet. Baby gently sways to sleep. They can't fall out of it, it's better on their digestion, and they help prevent SIDS because the fabric is incredibly thin, so if baby rolls over they can still breathe.

Rocking cradle on stand, Italy, 1600-1750 Flowers, foliage and angels are richly illustrated on this rocking cradle. It dates from the 1600s and is thought to be of Italian origin. A motif, possibly the head of Christ, is on each side of the cradle while a human face is painted on each end of the stand near the foot. The whole cradle is richly embellished with gold.
