French silver boatswain's call with a spherical buoy
French silver boatswain's call with a spherical buoy with a rosette on each side and a scalloped ridge running around it. The long gun is perfectly straight. The boatswain's call has a long history both as a symbol of office and as a practical instrument for conveying orders at sea. The call's shrill whistle can be varied in pitch to convey a variety of information, and can be heard above the sound of wind and sea. Such instruments were private possessions rather than official equipment and silver calls like this one made suitable gifts and presentation pieces.
