Rare large Malacca and silver bailiffs walking stick or cane, one of the best we've found for many years. Full London hallmark to the silver pommel with the date letter for 1903 and the makers mark for Matthew John Jessop of Hatton Garden. The over size shaft is Malacca with the pommel covered in silver that's been beautifully decorated with repousse work and engraving. To the cartouche on the top is blank. Inside the silver the top and shaft the cane is loaded with weight to the top and probably a steel bar to the shaft to make it not only good to bang on doors at arms length but also give a person a good bop on the head if they didn't pay. You could really do some damage with this cane. It weighs over 380 g which is heavy for a normal cane. Not the heaviest one we've had but still substantial. This one also has eyelets to the side for a wrist strap and is long for a cane of this period. The ferrule is original and made of black buffalo horn.
It measures 95.2 cm 37 1/2 inches in length, the pommel is 5 cm 1 15/16 inches wide.
