GUEST: I was told that this belonged to my grandmother as a baby, so I thought it was something to keep. This was a very early version of the bouncy seat.
APPRAISER: It's made by a company called the Glasscock company. Value-wise, they do show up at auction every now and then as sort of a curiosity, and I would think you could expect it to fetch probably $500 if you were in an auction scenario. It's vaguely Medieval-looking. I mean, now child protective services would be called in, to think that your child was in it.
