Here's a wonderful red clay whistle in the form of Little Red Riding Hood from Germany around 1890. The whistle is 2 5/8" high and very nicely detailed. She has her basket on her arm and she's holding a bunch of flowers for Grandma. It was hand painted. Only some paint is still there - on her yellow flowers and white shirt and her famous red cap. She has her name in German at the base "Rothkäppchen". It's a little hard to read, but easier when you know what it says.
The whistle works well and the overall condition is very good. It's a rare form for a whistle. They are always very collectible, and being Red Riding Hood, it's even more desirable.
