An antique French baby rattle pendant. A common antique gift and keepsake for newborn babies in France in the early 1900’s. Made from Silver and hollow to rattle. Rattles when shaken. Would make a great pendant or charm.
These were attached to a bone or bakelite ring for teething and holding onto. Would not now recommend these for actual baby use, but a great gift for display in the nursery.
