Tortoise shell, ebony and hallmarked silver walking stick or cane. The pattern of the tortoiseshell looks perfect with a dark line along the top, I'm going to say it's faux shell although it may be genuine. The silver was assayed in Birmingham as shown in the pictures, date letter for 1912 and makers mark for Jonathan Howell. Well figured T bar style handle that is comfortable to hold mounted on a beautiful ebony wood shaft. Quite fine at the base but strong being ebony. Silver collar is plain with a pinned seam to look like a buckle the hallmark and makers marks as embellishment and the initials GLA engraved to the front. The ferrule is original and made of brass and steel which shows little sign of wear. Please contact us with any questions you may have. UK special delivery £10 International sign for postage £20
It measures 93 cm 36 5/8 inches in length, the handle is 10.5 cm 4 1/8 inches wide.
Shires Antiques has clarified that the 1912 Tortoise Shell Tortoiseshell Ebony & Silver Walking Stick Cane (LA333002) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1912
It's in excellent condition but with some minor signs of age and use as you'd expect at this age. The handle has lovely colour contract and is in good condition but with a couple of small flakes to the underside edge. The ebony shaft is excellent with no damage or repairs.
