    well not really a baby and not new lol...but she is a treasure to me. I was over at the neighbors house the other day and she was showing me her new bedroom set....well sitting in the corner was this lovely and i ohhh and ahhed....well she asked if i wanted it. she said she wanted to get rid of it to make room for new arm chairs....well i said YES of course...She is made by American Standard and everything i could find online says it was made it in the early 1900 and in Cleveland Ohio. I will try and get some better pictures later but these will work for now...if anyone knows more about her i would love to hear....i need to get a new belt for her and fix 2 pieces on the front. oh and all she asked for was a quilt for her bed....which she is paying for all the fabric.

    I know nothing about her at all except that you sure hit the jackpot on this! She has found a good home now. Looks like she has been well cared for!
