Thessle

Cot-like construction, used at the end of the Erbuniatum ceremony, in which the Erbuniatunty is tucked in and rocked to sleep. Traditionally made from bamboo, but nowadays more commonly made from wood, wood veneer or even plastic.

Above: 17th century thessle. Despite its appearance, this device was actually quite uncomfortable.
