Favourite Item
An unusual Victorian unmarked gold whistle combined with a whist counter. The body of the whistle is finely engraved and bears a diamond registration mark which dates it to 5th February 1866. The top of the whistle is engraved with numbers for keeping score in whist and rotates around the whistle until it reaches the indicator for the correct number. The top of the whistle and the indicator are both marked with the patent mark too and the top engraved with the word Whist.
The whistle is in good condition with a couple of small dents to the body. The top rotates well. The whistle works. There are some fine scratches to the surface.
