MINIATURE Cradle Attributed to JONAS WEBER
Leacock Township, Lancaster County, PA, ca. 1840. Pine in original red paint, decorated with polychrome tulips and foliage with very thin crystallized over-varnish. Weber's paint decorated boxes are highly sought by collectors yet are actually more plentiful than his cradles. TINY AT JUST 8 1/2 inches long (MUCH SMALLER than cradles made for dolls). Paint and structurally in superb condition despite an old glued-crack to footboard. Similar examples of Weber toy cradles pictured in "Mennonite Arts" by Clarke Hess, page 66. Provenance: Private Connecticut collection; Sam Herrup, Don Walters, Arthur Liverant.
