A metal rocking cradle for a baby. The frame is constructed from metal wire formed into scroll shapes and consists of two feet at either end. The cradle basket itself is also constructed from metal wire and is oval in shape. It is suspended from the feet uprights and swings from side to side. Protruding from one end of the cradle is a single piece of wire which curves over the top of the cradle. A piece of plain white net curtain fabric (possibly nylon) is attached to the wire protrusion and acts as a canopy over the cradle.
