Rare sterling silver baby rattle in the form of Peter Pan with a mother of pearl handle. A wonderful representation of this character with fine details. Notice the ears,teeth,cap,and clothing---even the fringe detail where the silver meets the mother of pearl. It has the mark for the assay office of Birmingham and the date letter M for 1936. Maker's mark for W.H. Collins & Co. The rattle measures 4" long. Two small indentations to the silver on his nose and back tip of his hat is evidence that he was lovingly used. It probably had a teething ring at one time. This particular baby rattle figure is very collectable and rare. One in perfect condition with teething ring was listed for $1150.00 on the internet. A fabulous arrival gift for a special "little person" to pass down in the family. Or a treasure to enjoy in a collection.
