This is a delightful antique baby rattle/whistle, presented in what appears to be original box, in original condition. The cardboard box is pink and is
lined with an ivory parchment-like tissue paper. The lid is highly decorated with a lovely colorful scene of a young maiden in the the company of
several cherubs. The box is in excellent condition and measures 4.5 long X 1" x 1~5/8". Gold painted highlights.
The whistle measures 4", which includes the loop at the top, which appears to be celluloid. A portion of the body of the whistle is butterscotch
colored and shaped like a barrel. It has a pink ribbon tie and a brass bell. The handle appears to be bone, but could also be celluloid. Tip where one blows is a little darker. Whistle does work. When the whistle is shaken, one can somewhat hear the bell jingle. I would describe this as a baby toy with a whistle. Very delightful displayed with baby or doll items!
