Originally thought to be part of a shoemaker’s workshop, this stone weight actually used its heft in the nursery. A simple yet ingenious concept, the stone anchored the baby’s swaddling cloth to the bed so the child wouldn’t roll out. At rest just like its charge, the animal likely represents the Chinese zodiac sign under which the baby was born. Plan ahead for a great gift, the next Year of the Ox is 2021.
