That looks like a proper antique there, could it be a very old piece of Staffordshire maybe!?

No, wrong clays for Staffordshire or Devon slipware. I think its 60s or 70s at the earliest

Cheers :) Unfortunately not a whistle. The tail is solid

Aha 😁 is there a hollow through the beak? If so, I feel it could still be a pie funnel/whistle. Or is it too large? This could be something! Fitzwilliam Museum worthy even Laughter
I'm only an enthusiast though, learning as I go, with a serious pottery addiction.

It's pretty large; it would be a big pie :) Maybe they started off as whistles or pie funnels and just became ornamental objects
