Whistles in combination with compasses. These may be on the face, top, bottom, extended, embedded. They came in escargots and tube-shaped whistles as well as other more ornate or ingeius ways. There are hundreds of designs. From high quality to poor. Some craftsmen made them with beveled glass and some were even made to see through with glass on both sides. They date farther back into the 1800s than previously thought due to silver smiths designs seen in the higher markets.
