About this item
VERY EARLY CHILDS TIN RATTLE and WHISTLE
This fabulous very old tin rattle and whistle is superb. During the mid 1800's these were a common rattle and whistle toy.
The rattle is embellished with four impressed line designs around the barrel drum. The rattle still rings well with the original seeds or pellets inside. A remarkable piece of American history ! Whistle works too.
This example has survived in very good condition with no bending.
