What a wonderful and rare piece in such good condition.! These are seldom found since they are meant to be passed down through families for babies christening. This fine white Swiss embroidered eyelet cotton cover would have been used with a cotton or wool pad inserted into the back side to provide warmth and support for the little one bundled inside . The front cover has rows of fine "nun's pleats" or pin tucks interspersed with rows of the embroidered eyelet trim...

Not just for children, these blocks are even a challenge for adults! The German's are known for their excellent chromolithographs and these are wonderful depictions of Victorian children and their dogs and animals at play in various scenes. There are 4 different scenes included but I have finally figured out the 5th and am working on the final 6th scene(I told you it's a challenge...sooo much fun!) The wooden box is missing 1 end as shown in photos but all blocks are in tact...
