Shires Antiques has clarified that the Walking Stick Cane Hallmarked Solid Silver Greyhound Dog Head Partridge Wood Shaft (LA81460) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1909
It's in excellent condition but with some signs of age and use as you'd expect at this age. The partridge wood has flaked on the top of the curve but this looks as if it happened when the cane was made, there is no movement in the wood which is very strong and stable. Some bumps, scratches and pitting to the silver as shown.
