This is a sweet antique baby rattle that was made into an adult size bracelet. The rattle and the round beads test positive as sterling silver. The connecting rings and clasp are base metal. There are no markings for metal content or maker. The rattle is plain on one side and the other has a clock, scroll and baby on a scale. The idea was to have it engraved with time, date and weight for a new born baby, but this one was not engraved.
This bracelet weighs 11.8 gr. It measures 8" long. The rattle measures 1" x 1.25" x .25".
Condition: The rattle looks like a baby chomped down on it and indented it inward on both sides.
What a cute sentimental gift for a new mom. You could even have it personalized and engraved by your jeweler.
