The design seems to be a magnified view of shibori squares (white on red). The cloth is folded lengthwise and sewn on all sides. The whistle is of metal. A motif of a dove with an olive branch hanging from its beak is embossed on the mouthpiece. One side of the whistle's chamber is embossed with a circle. The bead inside the whistle is a small piece of cork. A ring is attached to the bulb at the top of the whistle through which the cloth passes. the piece is in good condition, though well-used The pattern on the cloth is the same as on the accent of a happi for a child in this series
