Antique Whistle | Rose Gold Victorian Whistle | Working Whistle | Tiny Rolled Rose Gold Whistle Chatelaine Pendant - 22 Inch Rose Gold Chain

Sorry, this item has sold.

An exquisite little rose gold antique whistle, hand chased with Etruscan Revival style ribs and pattern.

Working perfectly, delightful to handle and with beautiful patina, this Victorian chatelaine piece looks wonderful on a long necklace chain.

+ All the details

The Whistle:
This little whistle is rolled gold (not solid gold) with the lovely soft tone of old rose gold, not the pink color of new rose gold.

Size: 1.4 inches or 35mm long, 9mm diameter across the ball top. The drop from the chain, including the suspension ring and fob clip is 1.57 inches or 4cm.

Whistle and chain are shown on a life size torso in image 3.

Weight: 1.8 grams

Age: late 1800s (I have sold similar small hallmarked whistles from this era)

The Chain:
Presented on a new 22 inch or 56cm rose gold filled chain, stamped '1/20 14K Gold Filled' to the clasp.

Condition: Very, very good. Mild surface wear, no wear-through to the gold. In great working order with lovely patina throughout, the whistle sounds loudly with the slightest breath.

Janne's Notes:
How could I resist? This is a small whistle, clear and bright in sound. Both wonderful and useful!
