Quite an old one, very nicely done, and with its original gold paint making it especially special--and festive for the holidays! Being a rattle of sorts, this might be a good whimsy to gift a a much beloved child, with the expectation that it be handed down from one generation to the next--and definitely it's seen a few generations already But if just keeping for yourself, it's nice for just propping somewhere balanced on its pointy end (it just needs to lean lightly against something) or tie a ribbon around the other end and hang on the wall. And the balls rattle around quite nicely in their very thinly walled cage.
8 7/8" long x approximately 7/8" wide and deep. Very good I believe antique condition with wear, minor dings and paint loss here and there, all to the good I think.
