Description

This is a rare Victorian Bailiffs cane, these were used as protection when the bailiffs were out collecting debts. Very sturdy as you'd expect with a thick rosewood shaft, ivory ball top, silver collar and polish horn ferrule. Starting at the top the ivory ball has really good colour and patination and is in excellent condition.

The silver collar is decorated around the cane with a blank cartouche to the front. The hallmarks is for London 1891 and has the makers mark for William Flower of Weston Street, Coventry.

The rosewood shaft is really thick and heavy. The last picture shows a comparison with a normal cane. The colour is good with a good grain pattern. The ferrule at the base is made of polished horn or possibly deer antler.

The cane weighs 1 1/3 pound that's 533 grams, obviously you could do a good job of protecting yourself with a cane of that weight.

Super rare and very collectable piece, fresh to the market from a private collection.

Happy to answer any questions.
