Here's a most wonderful and large baby rattle and teething ring. Measuring the teething ring alone - it's 2 7/8" across - the largest of the bells is 2" long from the top of its ring to the bottom. The expert engraving reads "October 1st 1909", and a strawberry motif* is engraved around either side of a cabochon opal - the October birthstone. On the other side are the engraved initials - "H.W.W."
The condition is excellent. It is marked "sterling" 3 times on the rings that hold the beautiful bells, and it has a nice heavy weight.
This is really so great, somebody will be very lucky to get it
*Strawberries have lots of positive symbolism - The heart-shaped berry has always stood for purity, passion and healing. It was a symbol for Venus (goddess of love) because of its heart shape and red color.
