This smiling clown-faced, two-sided clapper noisemaker is an early one, and has its original wooden handle, and tin lithographed design on both sides.

It is marked M.B. Co., Copyrighted on both sides. This may stand for Milton Bradley, but I am not entirely sure.

It works, making one heck of a loud racket, and measures just under 10” long.

This piece could have been used at Hallowe'en, New Year’s, or at festive birthday parties.

It has some wear to the handle, some discoloration on both sides, and a little rust to one side as well. The original dark red interior shows a little paint wear.

Noisemakers such as this one were often given out as game prizes or party favors during the Roarin’ 1920s and the 1930s. This piece would make an excellent addition to a holiday collection or assortment of antique and vintage toys.

And hoots the hooting owl,
While in the heavy shadows
The gray ghost slyly prowl.

Happy Hallowe'en 2017!
