This rattle is a Vintage Sterling Silver and Mother Of Pearl Baby Doll Rattle. It is absolutely beautiful and has the Sterling Silver mark shown in photos 2 and 5. It is engraved with the word Sterling, a large W under that and then something that I can not read. May be the manufacturer. It has very little tarnish even though I was not able to capture it's beautiful shine in the photos. The front of the bail that holds the bell rattle onto the mother of pearl loop is engraved to look like a belt buckle. The bell does make a ringing rattling sound and would be darling on your baby doll. The Mother of Pearl Loop measures 1 3/4" in diameter and the bell is 1" by 1" and hangs totally 3". Has an engraved design on each side shown in picture 4. The Sterling Silver has some minor scratching which shows more in the photos than in person. It is really very beautiful and a great rattle. The Mother of Pearl loop is perfect and gorgeous!!!
