A very very rare find, this is an extra-large whip hook, they come in varying sizes and this is a good size. I have two more of these listed under my other items, a dwarf with blue glass eyes and a rabbit, both are smaller than this.
This piece is in fine order, its been cleaned waxed and polished, its perfect! The music feature works by simply pulling down on the hooks, the idea being when you hang your "Whip" on the hook it would pull down and play a little tune, I guess to cheer you up after whipping something! Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
