This celluloid baby rattle is about 100 years old. It's 5-1/2 inches high and in the form of a little girl playing a mandolin. Many of these rattles are one solid color, but this one is pink and blue on ivory. The front looks pretty good considering the age and delicate nature of celluloid, other than a dent or depression at the bottom of the girl's dress with a corresponding small seam split. The back has some flattening in the same area, as well as seam splits at both corners of the dress hem and a dent at the back of the head. The USA VCO Viscoloid mark is underneath her skirt, hard to see due to the flattening of the dress.
