Victorian Chatelaine Whistle | Antique Whistle | Sterling Silver Working Whistle, Silver Floral Forget-Me-Not Design - 34 Inch Long Chain

Sorry, this item has sold.

A charming sterling silver antique whistle with a hand chased pattern of swirling acanthus scrolls and Forget-Me-Not flowers. This Victorian chatelaine piece is working perfectly and is very loud - a great security whistle!

Delightful to handle and with beautiful patina, the whistle looks beautiful worn on a long chain.

+ All the details

Sterling silver, stamped 'STERLING' on the cap. The suspension ring is also sterling silver. This type of whistle does not have a cork pea inside, an interior bar and shaping produces sound.

Whistle: 1.77 inches or 45mm long and .5 inches or 12mm wide. Whistle and chain are shown on a life size torso in image 3.

Weight: 10 grams (without the necklace chain)

Age: c.1900

The Chain:
Presented on a new stainless steel chain, just over 34 inches or 86cm long. Stainless steel suits the color of antique silver well and is hypoallergenic.

Condition: Very, very good. The whistle is in great working order with lovely patina throughout. A well weighted whistle very strongly made.

Janne's Notes:
Not only beautiful but very useful on a long chain! A nice piece for a collector or a unique gift.
