A beautiful and rare miniature pottery cradle, dating to the late 18th to early 19th century. It is underglazed in green with impressed basket weave pattern to the surface. It rests on two rocker supports. It is naively made and probably originates from the Staffordshire area.

These miniature pieces are often described as toys, or as gifts given to a newly married couple to encourage the birth of offspring.

It is in good original condition with a few minor nicks to the glaze.

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
