baby walker

Baby walker, consisting of an upright length of wood with a horizontal bar attached at a right angle around a quarter of the way from the base and supported with a cross brace. Attached to this is a loop of wood, which can be opened on a hinge and is secured with an iron latch. In here is where the baby would be placed. The vertical bar is narrowed at the top and bottom so that it can be slotted into to the ceiling and floor. There is wood boring beetle damage throughout.
