- Quantity Available: 1
A superb Victorian baby rattle, the handle carved from a large piece of mother-of-pearl and adorned on either side with a gorgeous Art Nouveau lady's head worked in sterling silver. Three silver bells hang from the lady's hair. This is a most unusual decorative theme for a baby's rattle. Although unsigned, the quality of workmanship would suggest Kerr or Unger as a likely maker. Marked "Sterling".
Origin: America, ca. 1895. Condition: excellent, except for the bells which show considerable normal wear. Size: 4-1/2" long.
