Antique Victorian Tin Cricket - Christmas Noisemaker Holiday Noisemaker
May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: About 25 years ago, I came into a collection of Victorian Christmas ornaments from Germany. In one of the bags was a group of 12 tin crickets, all different colors. Most of the crickets were marked GERMANY but some were not. The noisemaker I offer here is the last cricket I have and is unmarked. It was originally a bright silver color but you can see how 125 years of age and use, have worn away the bright silver coloring. The cricket still works as it should and has a nice loud CRACK!
CONDITION: Vintage patina - light rusting of the click mechanism on the bottom.
METAL CONTENT: Tin
HALLMARKS: None that I can find.
SIZE: 1-3/4" long x 3/4" wide.
FINAL COMMENTS: A terrific collectible and as I mentioned, my last one!
