This is completely adorable and for the collector of antique children's toys and puzzles.
They are all made in Germany and obviously pre-WWI.
This is a sweet little set of wooden building blocks - and more unusual in that they have a little rattle inclusion inside.
They must have been for very young children as there are only four little wooden cubes in the set. They come in their original card box as shown.
Each side of each block is decorated with different chromo-lithographed printed images of a variety of animals.
As you can see from my photographs they are all in pretty good vintage condition.
I love the image on the box which is particularly attractive and shows a little Victorian or Edwardian child in their nursery playing with blocks - they wear a little sailor suit ... so popular with children at this time.
Fair price for this attractive wee set of rattle blocks - which reflects the attractiveness and condition of the images - and the unusual box.
Probably an item for the more specialist collector - happy to post internationally, please ask for a postage quote outside of the UK.
