Pottery animal and bird whistles - Any help would great fully recieved Img_5915I’m not sure that these figures will be appreciated and they are not my usual genre but they were in a box I bought at auction and I haven’t got a clue
They are all undamaged and are whistles.
There were a couple of larger ones clearly from a different source but marked.
The Boar is great!
The only mark is on a small animal and looks like AB but ……

Most have two but some have three and can play more than one note - the two I’ve not shown are different not Slipware.
I’ve put them away now and I’m doubting myself because it may be the ones I didn’t photograph have three - sorry Philpot - I can get them out again…. I just thought they were a bit of fun.
Love the boar - I’ve got 5 others with damage but there’s only one with the mark on!
Thanks for looking

They are might well be ocarinas. A very old simple musical instrument. A very long history, especially in South America. Mexico is a Very big place for them.

From the forms and artwork, some appear to be Peruvian and/or Mexican.
