An incomplete cast lead whistle of modern date. The whistle is a hollow cone with open apex and a sub-triangular section removed to act as the sound hole. A casting seem is present along the two sides of the whistle and it is moulded with a design consisting of two ovate elements, giving the appearance of eyes. To either side of the "eyes" are two semi-circular designs which is repeated in retrograde on the bottom just in front of the sound hole.
The metal has a mid greyish white colour and is worn. The whistle is 15.8mm long, 13.9mm wide, 7.8mm thick and weighs 2.9g.
