This is a baby cradle, made of wood. It was built by Stefan Ples, (1912-1985) of Whistler, BC. The cradle was commissioned by Joyce and Don Gow for their daughter, Karen Walker. Karen received the cradle from her parents in August of 1974, before the birth of her first child. Four babies slept in it. Karen gifted the cradle to Renate Bareham in 2010, as Renate is Stefan's daughter. The cradle has an inscription in German at one end, it means "In this cradle you will see what came from love". It is in good condition.
Bareham, Renate (Mrs. Bruce) (nee Ples)
