An excellent and very rare Edwardian baby's silver rattle incorporating a whistle (which is very unusual) and coral teether. The rattle has four jingly bells and is nicely decorated. To the top, is a whistle and the teether handle is made from lovely deep peach coloured coral. Hallmarks are visible on one side of the silver for the Birmingham Assay office with a date mark for 1901 and Lion Passant indicating fine sterling silver . The marker's mark is also clearly visible for the silver maker: C E Williams.
This item is a wonderful collector's piece and a great gift idea for Christening, new baby. Unusual and in fabulous condition.
