Whistles!

I wanted to share a very special button with you. This is what’s known as a “Whistle” button. They come in various sizes, shapes, colors. This one is a vintage paisley design, and I couldn’t help but share it with you.

In the first picture, I asked my husband to hold it, so you can see – this side of the button is the side with only ONE HOLE, and he held it to the light, and you can faintly make out that it really has two holes on the other side. This is a true WHISLE BUTTON. Then, you can see the other side has TWO WHOLES. Plain as day. When you look straight through . . .  you should be able to see a small portion of the two holes through the top hole.

This looks like it is a wooden button, but at closer examination, it is Celluloid. Very unique.
