A novelty sterling silver child’s rattle in the form of the popular Victorian puppet character Mr Punch. Complete with four bells, a bone teether ring and a real mother of pearl handle. Super large size. Length 20 cms. Birmingham 1913. Maker Crisford & Norris.
This pretty baby’s rattle is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. The silver bells are complete and matching. Fully stamped with English silver hallmarks which are clear and easy to read. There is also a registration mark and next to it, another mark which is indistinct. The mother of pearl handle has a lovely shiny finish.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
Literature. Often associated with traditional British seaside culture, Punch and Judy is a popular puppet show featuring Pulcinella (Mr. Punch) and his wife, Judy. The various episodes of Punch and Judy are performed in the spirit of outrageous comedy — often provoking shocked laughter — and are dominated by the anarchic clowning of Mr. Punch. The Punch and Judy theme was popularly represented in Victorian novelty silver, often condiments and jugs, and these have become highly prized collectors items.
