Description

Lovely Victorian snakewood and hallmarked silver walking stick or cane. Super weight and the thickest grade silver I think I've ever seen on a cane. You can see the thickness in the pictures as it stands away from the shaft. The silver was assayed in London as shown in the pictures, date letter for 1885 and makers mark for Albert Barker of New Bond Street. Lovely engraved decoration to the silver top. with the initials BW or WB to the top of the pommel.

The colour of the grain in the wood is excellent. The ferrule is original and made of brass and steel and doesn't look as if it's had a great deal of wear as there is loads of the steel tip still showing.

Really strong cane that will support plenty of weight.

Please contact us with any questions you may have.


Measurements

It measures 88.3 cm 34 3/4 inches in length, the pommel is 3.5 cm 1 1/2 inches wide and 5 cm 2 inches long.

Declaration

Shires Antiques has clarified that the London Walking Stick Cane Hallmarked Solid Silver Pommel Snakewood Shaft (1466 / LA163528) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1885.

Condition

It's in excellent condition but with some signs of age and use as you'd expect at this age. Some bumps, scratches and pitting to the silver as shown. Two movements in the wood near the pommel as shown, these haven't weakened the shaft and are stable. Really strong cane that will support plenty of weight.
