Charming antique baby cradle of the Arab tribes of southern Iran. These pieces are rare to find, especially in good condition. Gahvareh means cradle in Persian. The baby is placed in the center and the two sides are attached to wooden posts. The baby can be rocked without the possibility of falling and while the mother or another family member work. The decoration is colorful, and the pompoms, in addition to being decorative, were attached to the cradle to ward off flies and insects. This cradle was probably woven as part of the trousseau. The background is cotton and the rest is all wool.
