Hey everyone! I have an old garage find that I'm looking to fix up but I'd love some more information on it. The whistle stands almost 3ft tall, no markings and looks to be a 3 chime. I dont know if it came off an old ship or train and was curious if anyone can help me identify it. Would love any info that points me in the right direction. Thank you!

Could be a whistle from a factory, as well. They were used to signal shift changes, among other things.

I would be willing to let it go for $1000 if you would like it. If you pay for shipping, ill build a crate to fit it

You have a rare heavy duty Star Brass 3 note chime.Hang onto it!
Double or treble the value of your whistle on eBay.
