Antique Victorian Webster Co. Sterling Silver Bunny Rabbit Baby Bib Clips With Chain #c863
This is a wonderful set of two Victorian chained sterling silver bunny rabbit bib clips from the Webster Company of Attleboro, MA. The company was founded in 1869 by George K. Webster and they were well known for their fine sterling pieces, including many silver baby items such as this piece. The company later became a subsidiary of Reed & Barton.

The piece features two perky little sterling silver bunnies with marvelous chased details for their ears, eyes, whiskers and other features. The two pieces are connected by a sterling cable chain and each bunny has a clip on the back to attach it to a baby's bib and hold it in place. It's a wonderful piece that would make a fine new baby gift. It could also by a woman as a cute sweater guard or at the neckline of a blouse.

The chain measures about 5 1/2 inches long and the bunnies are each about 1 inch long and 3/4 inch wide. The weight of the piece is 8.4 grams. Each of the bunnies is signed and hallmarked "Sterling" and with the superimposed letters "WC" with an arrow running through them (the mark of the Webster Co.) on the back.

This is such a delightful antique piece and its in excellent condition for its age. The clips work properly and the chased details on the bunnies are nice and crisp. It's a great find! 
***CAUTION NOTE***: If used as a bib clip for a baby, the baby must be supervised at all times while the clips are in use to avoid injury or ingestion of the pieces. The clips should always be removed before allowing the baby to play or sleep.
