Description

Over the years we've sold hundreds of walking sticks. I have to say I think this is the best one we've ever had.

Meet MYRTLE the rabbit. Rare snakewood shaft and hallmarked silver walking stick or cane.

The silver was assayed in London as shown in the pictures, date letter for 1902 and makers mark for Albert John Watts of Upper Ashby Street, London.

Add to the exceptional maker you have the retailers stamp for Benjamin (Ben) Cox of 411 Oxford Street. One of the top stick retailers at the turn of the 1900's.

The handle at the top is designed as a rabbit. The details is fabulous, the fur is very realistic, stunning red glass eyes and an overall charming face. The grain pattern in the snakewood shaft is also excellent. The ferrule is original and made of brass.

If you go to James Smith of London today a snakewood plain crook handle cane with a silver collar will set you back £1750. Other sites have snakewood canes with no silver at 1450 euro.

I think this makes our asking price really reasonable for such a stunning antique.
Please contact us with any questions you may have.
