Nanny bench with original detailed Pennsylvania Dutch paint and stenciling. Generally these were placed and decorated in an important room in the house, probably near the fireplace to keep warm in the winter. Originally these were used primarily throughout the south for a nanny to be able to do some work while lulling a baby to sleep while rocking back and forth. The removable child tender (slats) would hold the quilted baby while the nanny had room to work and rock the baby to sleep. Great to use with or without the baby guard.
