Early 1900's Metropolitan Police Whistle.


A delightful piece of British history- the iconic Metropolitan Police whistle. Produced by J Hudson & Co., England, in the early 1900's.

This antique whistle would have been issued to and used by the Police in London, England in the early 1900's. You can imagine an old fashioned Police "Bobby" walking his rounds on the cobbled streets of London with his whistle tucked in his breast pocket, ready to toot-toot should he come across a dastardly criminal and have to give chase!

This would make a wonderful gift for a Steampunk enthusiast, or as a quirky antique display item or could even be turned into a highly unique upcycled piece of jewellery!

The whistle is in good condition considering it's age. The chrome plating has tarnished a little in places and there is a slight dint to the mouth piece but this is normal for a police whistle of this age.

8.25 cm long
1.6 cm diameter
