Post medieval lead-tin alloy (pewter) whistle of 18th century date
The whistle is near-complete, with some peripheral damage to the mouth-piece (with a length of 39.5mm and a weight of 7.0g). The whistle comprises three parts, with the curved plate soldered to underside of the mouth-piece and end section joined at an expanded sleeve (with a diameter of 14.2mm). The casting seams are clearly discernible on both sections and there is no cast decoration. There is a D-shaped sound-hole (8.4mm wide and 4.0mm long). At the terminal is a suspension loop (5.0mm diameter and 2.7mm internal diameter) at the end of a slender neck (9.3mm long and 2.6mm minimum diameter). The surface has a dark-grey patina and has a linear dent on the underside.
