This fine and impressive antique George V English sterling silver pea whistle has a cylindrical chamber with a plain tapering mouthpiece.
The surface of the whistle is plain and unembellished, apart from the feature full and part hallmarks.
The interior of the whistle incorporates a 'pea' which moves in the air chamber; this allows the pitch to subtly and continuously change.
The bulbous end of the whistle is fitted with a plain ring loop attachment.
