Steel & Brass

Categories > Steel & Brass

It has been a passion of ours to collect and study steel/brass whistles. Although made during a time when materials were scarce to save funds for the war effort, these whistles when examined more closely really come to the fore. Recently we have found two escargots. Until then all have been a variety of tube shaped ones. They can be polished, but the steel really goes well with the brass when its patina darkens. Circa 1910-1940. Most were painted with oxidation methods and over time the finish wasted away revealing the dual combination beneath to our delight.
