Simplex Tin Whistle Toy
These vintage 1 3/8" tall whistles were found in the original sealed box (pictured - we are keeping it for our collection). The box is marked Kaysons Novelty Company Brooklyn, NY. Several boxes of these came out of an old warehouse on the east coast. People were guessing that they were 60 or more years old, but I think they are much older. They were in dry storage and have no rust. This thick tin which is embossed "tongue" and "lips" is more likely from an earlier era. Probably 1910s or 20s. This is the same warehouse we found unsold graniteware in and a lot of the stuff in there went way back.
