This item is very heavy, and imprinted with the numbers '16191'. It is approximately 20-24" tall.

Anybody know what this is? My curiosity is killing me! ;-)

    Sorry to tell you, but you might just die! It has pipe threads & nipple like for high water or steam pressure. Can it be a whistle or high-press. relief valve?whistle?

    Yes this is a nice brass steam whistle probable train or steam ship. They sometimes use these on a two step like a tractor and these are highly collectible items. Michelle Renee' DuBois

    Is it official now that I actually I beat Rob in identifying something this once? "Hawaii 50" must be on vacation! A shot of Tia Maria is called for.
