Post medieval lead-tin alloy (pewter) whistle of 18th century date


The whistle is incomplete, missing the mouth-piece section (with a surviving length of 26.9mm and a weight of 4.0g). The fragment comprises two joined parts, joined at an expanded sleeve (with a diameter of 13.8mm). The casting seams are clearly discernible on both sections. The D-shaped sound-hole survives and is enhanced with cast decoration comprising a pellet border and floral scrolls. At the terminal is a suspension loop at the end of a slender neck (10.0mm long and 2.4mm minimum diameter). The surface has a dark-grey patina.
