VERY EARLY CHILDS TIN ABC RATTLE
FOR A GOOD CHILD
This fabulous very old tin rattle and whistle is superb. During the mid 1800's these were a common rattle and whistle toy.
Each side of the rattle is embellished with the American Eagle with the words " For A Good Child". The circumference of the rattle has the letters of the alphabet. The rattle still rings well with the original seeds or pellets inside. A remarkable piece of American history !
This example has survived in very good condition with only a bit of light surface rust and a ding on the whistle handle. Still rattles and whistles.
