    I found this at a local thrift store a week or so ago. I bought it only because I had just won a large box full of antique dolls & dull furniture (even though this is bigger), but when I looked on eBay I saw that these bring a pretty good price; especially compared to what I paid for it ($5.95).
    Plus, it also came with a lace mosquito net & a pillow with matching lace trim (the pillow is some kind of foam which made me think it can't be that old)

    Is this old? Or new?(I figure with the phillips screws holding the rockers on that it can't be too old - but maybe 70s? Handmade?
    I looked for others to compare mine with & I can not find another wicker bassinet that rocks! Is it that rare?
    PS - it measures 18" Long x 15" Tall

    Thank you for any info!

    Cute, but not old.

    It almost looks like someone assembled two different baskets, and added rockers.

    The lace is contemporary.

    I agree, cute. Could have been made in Southeast Asia. Southern China or the Philippines maybe. And yes, hand made, with machine made lace.
