Faye's crib

I built this crib for our new daughter Faye. It's walnut with zebra wood on the head and toe boards. It feels very much mid century modern- did anyone think to build cribs in modernism's heyday? Or would it have been unusual to fuss so much over something for a child, and something only to be used for a short period of time back then? I don't know the answers to these questions, but this crib feels to me like it would have fit right in 60 years ago.
