Treen bird scarer
These rattles when swung rapidly emit a strong clacking sound as the wooden tongue rattles over the wooden cog, this model is weighted to the end to make it swing with extra vigour, it is still in working order. The parts are all turned from oak, with wonderful colour and patina.
British, circa 1880

Condition: All in very good order, the cog is missing two teeth, but this does not stop it from working.
