VERY EARLY CHILDS TIN ABC RATTLE

FOR A GOOD CHILD

c 1860

This fabulous very old tin rattle and whistle is superb. During the mid 1800's these were a common rattle and whistle toy.

Each side of the rattle is embellished with the American Eagle with the words " For A Good Child". The circumference of the rattle has the letters of the alphabet. The rattle still rings well with the original seeds or pellets inside. A remarkable piece of American history !

This example has survived in very good condition with a light bend on the whistle handle. Still rattles.
