Vintage baby playpen
Made by Abbott Co., this is a Step-Fold design. Mid Century design, c. 1960's.
The step-fold design is such an amazingly easy to fold design. The mechanism works beautifully still! This model features strung beads, all original. In fact, all parts are original. It is in fair condition, not suitable for infants now because of safety standards having changed so much, but still a rare find for a collector or for display.
The hardware has some rust but I did not work very hard to get it off. I will leave that for you to decide what you would like to do with that. The castors are original, but they have seen better days. All of them still work just fine. One falls off when you pick up the unit, again I will leave that for you to decide whether to glue it. I'm sure it would be just fine after some glue. There are noticable discoloration spots that are probably completely normal for wear. This unit held 4 children in its day (I was one of those 4). It's a beautiful beast!
If you have any questions or need further photos please let me know. I will be selling this "as is" with no returns.
