This adorable antique police whistle is steeped in history- it was produced in 1923 and sold by the S.W. Reese & Co. Catalog, an outfitter to N.Y. police departments. It is a substantially-made Prohibition-Era piece, crafted in Germany of brass and plated with nickel silver. It's quite loud (we couldn't resist testing it) and certainly must've been the item for the job when it came to catching someone's attention on the busy streets of N.Y!

Measures about 3.25" long.

Thanks for looking! There are more antique, vintage, collectible & handmade items waiting in our store- stop by and take a look :)
