This cradle, which follows an antiquarian design proposed by the Queen with detailed suggestions from Prince Albert, was intended for their fourth daughter, Princess Louise. The royal and Saxe-Coburg arms are incorporated with emblems of sleep. At the Great Exhibition, Rogers’ work was likened to that of Grinling Gibbons.
