Brass nickel plated chain with swivel hook and 50 inch length of chain.
The original ACME design from 1870. This whistle was used to give commands to the ship's crew. The high pitched notes can be heard in the worst gales. Today it is used mostly for ceremonial purposes. Each pipe supplied with a certificate of authenticity and instruction for use. This traditional call is not just a whistle but a musical instrument. They are used by Navies around the world, including Australian, British, Malaysian, US and South African Navies.
A nice gift idea.
