Description

Malacca hard wood and hallmarked silver walking stick or cane. The silver was assayed in London as shown in the pictures, date letter for 1920 and makers mark for Charles Cooke made for the top quality retailer Brigg of London. The silver collar is engraved with the name Col L Spencer, Turf Club W1. The Turf Club was founded in 1861 as the Arlington Club, with premises in Bennett Street, Piccadilly.

In 1965, the Turf Club moved to its current home at 5 Carlton House Terrace, SW1Y 5AQ, overlooking the Mall. Carlton House Terrace itself was designed and built by John Nash, the famous Regency architect, between 1827 and 1833. The lease on Number 5 was held by the Earls of Caledon from 1830 until 1929, and its residents included Lord Palmeston; John Hay the US Ambassador; and Harry Gordon Selfridge, founder of Selfridges
Some quotations about the club include:
'Probably the most exclusive club in London.' [1911]
'At the turn of the [Twentieth] century, when many clubs were forced to admit a wider range of members, the Turf remained notably exclusive. It has always been particularly well off for Dukes.' [1979].

It is the most beautiful gentlemen's club in London and has the youngest membership.' [1984]
In December 2008, it was reported by the Daily Mail that the Princes William and Harry, sons of the Prince of Wales, had been given membership to the club. In the same article it was written that the annual members' fee was £1,000.

The ferrule is original and made of polished black buffalo horn.
