Penguin Rattle is EPNS. Victoria pin, pheasant stopper are not marked. Thimbles are not marked and are not thought to be silver.
Rattles: Both largely in good order. Owl example shows moderate denting, particularly to the bells. Both show moderate scratching and wear commensurate with age and use.
Salt: Some misshaping to the border when viewed top down, some misshaping to the foot. Moderate loss to the engraved detail.
Pickle fork shows misshaping to tines. Heavy scratching and chipping to the glass thistle.
Miniature thimbles show very heavy scratching and wear.
Stopper, card holders, multi-tool and pin appear largely in good order, showing general scratching and wear commensurate with age and use.
