Ratchet Style Old Handmade Wooden Noisemaker

Sale price $20.00 Regular price $36.00

These old noisemakers--aka clappers, clackers, battle rattles, etc.--are pretty fun to wave around, with a strong motion of the arm producing a satisfying, loud thwack as the tongue slaps the side of the notched wheel as it turns (or, of course, one can just use a second hand to turn it.) A perfect, simple design solution to the need to make noise(!), it's also just a great looking object--this one with boxed end stained green, and a nice turned handle. Very satisfying. 

Very good condition, with lots of use in it yet. There's a bent nail and maybe one added nail on the top edge of the green end.  6 1/2" long x 4 1/2 tall.
