Extremely rare exotic snakewood and Scottish hallmarked silver walking stick or cane. The silver roundel to the top of the pommel is stamped with the Scottish Inverness assay office mark and the makers mark for Ferguson and McBean, this mark was used between 1887 and 1893 making it late Victorian. Lovely grain pattern to the wood, it doesn't show brilliantly in the pictures but in natural sunlight it's stunning. The graining is almost hooped with varying amounts of pattern alone the shaft as you'd expect from a natural product. A rare and very expensive exotic hardwood. The ferrule is original and made of polished red deer antler. Please contact us with any questions you may have.
It measures 92.4 cm 36 3/8 inches in length, the silver roundel is 2.8 cm inches 1 1/8 wide.
