Victorian double pipe, bubble top, Round Knop whistles.
Victorian British made Double pipe, Multi tube, bubble top, round knops whistles.
Double pipe whistles, Multi tube, multi pipes.two tubes whistles. are some of the names used for these type. Here are samples made by 3 classic british whistle manufacturers
Barral, Hudson, and De Courcy. a Ward made one is discussed in a different entry.
I ussualy devide these types into 3 general groups
1) Heavy brass. (See below)
Made 19th century to early 1900, These were relatively expencive and competition forced
makers into a liter cheaper variations.
2) Lite construction. with straight mouthpiece.
3) Lite construction tin angled mouthpiece which is the lightest.
Of course there are more subcatgories and 3 and 4 pipes as well. I should discuss it in more depth in the future.
