A pretty Regency Rosewood Child's Cradle, the headboard with a reeded frame surmounted with a carved rose flower filled basket, the sides with turned spindles and the whole raised on end supports with slipper feet.

Provenance: Lady Dunphie, Roundhill Grange, Charlton Musgrove. The Cradle was part of the estate of the late Lady Dunphie a direct descendant of Sir Richard Arkwright, a key figure of the Industrial Revolution who is often credited with being the creator of the modern factory system. Arkwright was knighted in 1786 and served as High Sheriff of Derbyshire. In 1788 he purchased an estate from Florence Nightingale's father, William, for £20,000 and set about building Willersley Castle for himself and his family. Sir Richard died in 1792 before the building was completed. Willersley Castle was later completed and occupied by his son Richard
Note: The rose flower filled carved basket is significant as Rose is a long standing fanily name in the Arkwright Family.
