A very sweet baby rattle made of celluloid. Dating from the vintage years of the Edwardian to early 1930's, the figural rattle features a clown or jester playing a mandolin. Rattle still is in working order. A baby's charming plaything from the past.

Sitting on an embossed oval circle, the charming jester figure is tinted in blue, while the mandolin is tinted in pink. The remainder of the rattle is cream celluloid.  Trademarked with a VC impressed on the back of the jester, it is the trademark of Viscoloid Company, Leominster, Ma.   Rattle still is in working order.

Height of the rattle is 4-3/8" tall x 2" wide at the widest point.

Condition: The only thing I noticed is a dimple of the celluloid on one of the jester's checks and one on the back of the hat brim.  A tiny bit of rub wear to the back of jester.  This would occur when the rattle is laying flat.  I don't see any separation or breaks.
