a hand carved train whistle, it sounds just like an old locomotive, very cool piece, any idea who made this piece ? they knew what they were doing when they made this piece :) the little hole in the top n bottom has a glass piece with an image of a battle scene, on the top it says Souvenir of Lookout Mountain, and on the bottom it says Battle Above The Clouds when you look in the hole and hold it up to a light

    Hello, what an interesting piece. I don't know who made it, but I believe it's called a stanhope.

    I've seen these made of antler also. Made by the locals to sell to the tourists at Lookout Mountain.
