Rare to find match stick Folk Art shaft hallmarked silver walking stick or cane. The silver was assayed in London as shown in the pictures, date letter for 1922 and makers mark for Thomas Davis of Avebury Street, Hoxton. The shaft is fabulous covered with match sticks which are then inset with ebony dominos. Could have been a presentation piece for a competition or an enthusiast for the game. The shaft was more than likely made and then taken to the silversmith for the pommel to be added. It's been varnished which has helped to keep it in such good condition. Lovely engraved decoration to the silver top. The ferrule is made of brass and is a later replacement. Please contact us with any questions you may have.
It measures 91.5 cm 36 inches in length, the pommel is 3.5 cm 1 3/8 inches wide.

It's in excellent condition but with some signs of age and use as you'd expect at this age. Some bumps and surface marks plus a small split to the silver as shown. The shaft is in excellent condition with not one match stick missing which is incredible.
