Shires Antiques has clarified that the Walking Stick Cane 9ct Gold Pommel Malacca Shaft J Howell (LA439019) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1926
It's in excellent condition but with some very minor signs of age and use as you'd expect this age. Minor surface marks on the gold but no holes, splits or repairs. Amazing when you think how soft gold is. The grade A malacca shaft is excellent with no damage or repairs. A few surface marks where the fibres of the wood have been worn. Being a fibrous wood it's strong but light weight.
