The dog head whistle is carved from one piece of stag horn, with the bark left showing on the top. The eyes have small round red glass stones, the back plug is made from dark hard wood, and the original ball inside is intact. The dog collar is made from a separate piece of carved stag horn. The shaft is made from exotic Malacca wood, and no two pieces are ever identical. Malacca is a species of rattan found on the coast of Sumatra.Malacca canes were made famous in the UK in the heralded Malacca umbrella shafts, canes, and quirts of yesteryear. The bottom of the shaft is wrapped in beige cord with a collar at the top. The bottom has a wide suede leather strap used to affix the thin tapering braided leather quirt with a knotted string popper with a tassel on the end. Note this style combination dog whistle and quirt are purposefully small in size. At first glance, the size looks like a toy; however, all hunting quirts in this distinctive type of hunting quirt are light weight and follow the same pattern and size; with slight variations in size and dog head carvings.
The dog head is 1 5/8 long. This piece is only 11 from the top of the dog head to the bottom of the wide leather loop.The braided leather quirt and string popper are 25 long; about 36 long overall. When you grasp the handle with the dog head to the rear, you can see that the quirt would be effective in persuading his mount. Although the dog whistle is small, it works as intended, and gives off a distinctive high shrill sound that dogs can easily hear, better than humans. The best way to utilize the whistle is to hold the handle horizontal in the right hand, put the end of the whistle to the lips, and blow to create a specific dog call. This English piece dates to around the 1920s 1930s and is in minty condition.
