From our Baby Rattle Collection......
This is one we have yet to encounter....
A delightful mixture of an Antique Sterling Silver Hansel and Gretel with the Witch Baby Rattle... suspended on a grand 999 Sterling Silver overlay chain with a single teardrop Aurora Borealis Crystal for a bit of bling.
The detail is amazing, you can see the flowers in the window, the Cat and the blades of Grass at their feet. The raised motif design is the same on Both sides.
The sound of the rattle is delightful to the ears!
A fun and unique piece! A Great Mother or Grandmother GIFT!!
