This sterling rattle is in excellent condition with little wear and a slight patina. The two hanging rattles have an acanthus design around the top and a heart motif around the bottom. The middle section is very ornate. This piece is 3 3/4" in length from ring to ring and 1" in diameter. The larger ring is 1 1/4" in diameter and the smaller one at top is just over 5/8" in diameter. It is stamped sterling and a makers mark of B&F. To the left of the sterling stamp is a small engraved capitol B. This is a remarkable piece.
