Rattles date back at least 2500 years ago. A rattle was found in Poland, in a child’s tomb. The child was a member of the Lusatian culture of the Iron Age, and has been proved authentic. That clay rattle had the shape of a cushion and was filled with little balls.
This French rattle in silver .800 (hallmark is a boar head), with bone handle, continues the ancient tradition.
It features three bells (also in solid silver) in the typical hazelnut shape. One of them is actually missing. It was thought that the bone handle would help children during teething!
