Does anyone know about antique cradles,,,just acquired this family piece...unfortunately it came with no info.
The second pic is a silhouette of a head on the side of the hood..maybe a makers mark?

Lovely piece. Lucky you! It does look like a maker's mark burned or stamped into the wood. I'll look through my books of marks and see if I can find anything but it's probably a long-shot. Do you have any idea about how old the piece is? Did it come from FL or somewhere else?

I haven't been able to track down the mark. I doubt if that will be an easy thing to do if it was a local maker with his own mark. But what a treasure that piece is. Luv it!
