Shires Antiques has clarified that the 1927 Walking Stick Cane Hallmarked Solid Silver Pommel Ebony Wood Shaft Ben Cox (LA222024) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1927
It's in excellent condition but with some signs of age and use as you'd expect at this age. Some minor bumps and surface marks to the silver as well as a small split in the top seam. Shown in close up, with the naked eye I'd missed it completely before I took the pictures. The shaft is excellent with no damage or repairs.
