Authentic Wooden Schoenhut Bassinet (Doll Crib)

c.1920's estimate

This listing is for an antique doll bassinet/crib which was acquired from an 88 year old woman in New Jersey who was selling off her doll collection.

I will do my best to describe this item but please keep in mind it is difficult to mention everything when you are talking about a pre-owned, very old wooden item like this.

Measurements are approximately 25" wide x 22.5" high on one side and 21.25" high on other side (one side higher than other) x 14" deep. If you measure out to sides of wheels then it is 15.75" deep. Looks to me like all of the main pieces are including all 4 sides, all 4 original wheels, two bars used to slide side rail up and down, and the metal frame for under a mattress. Among the things you need to know when reconditioning this piece, the metal frame needs to be restrung, some hardware like a couple of screws are missing, and 1 of the 4 pegs that are used to hold up the metal mattress frame in the bottom of the bassinet is missing but peg can easily be replaced by a person with carpentry skills.
