Wooden Cradle with Hand Crank

This is a wooden baby cradle/bassinet that has a spring powered hand crank to make it swing back and forth. It is a Jenny Lind style and is at LEAST 60 years old. The hand crank was removed and is in the floor next to the cradle in the pictures. It was taken off to fix. It goes on the end of the cradle. I'm looking for more information and approximate value.
