Whistle up some luck with this intriguing duo! A sturdy little sterling silver antique whistle from the Edwardian era, gently rounded and beautiful to hold, together with a silver horseshoe.
The whistle is working perfectly (and loudly!) with the gentlest blow, delightful to handle and with beautiful patina, this lovely historical pair was found together and they look wonderful on a long necklace chain.
