Yes, Shiebler. I thought I had a thread about it before, but I can't seem to find it--though I did post photos in one of the Great Faces threads, so maybe that's what I was remembering. Here's the moon face on the front:

Here's the side with the marks--the handle is a whistle (for some reason Autocorrect just changed "whistle" to "whistleblower"):

What a thing to give a baby, right? I've seen versions with bells attached. No wonder infant mortality was so high back then, with all those babies dying of fright or choking on bells from their Shiebler rattles!

Unusual Russian bat pendant, the back is engraved with a date of 1918 and, in Cyrllic, what appears to be the name of a gymnasium in Kiev.


Mid-century Japanese bat cufflinks


Small Victorian gold, silver, and pearl spider pin


1/2 of a small Kerr 3-dimensional spider clasp or buckle of some kind. (Oddly enough many years ago I had the other half of this buckle and eventually sold it, never imagining I would one day find its mate!! The other half is pictured in slide 32 of my "Collector's Eye" about bug silver).
