A Victorian Cane/Walking Stick with a Silver Collar 1894
Most gentlemen in the 19th and early 20th century would have carried a cane. Canes would rarely been used as a walking aid, as anybody at this time who had problems walking would have used a crutch. The cane was mostly used by gentlemen for affectation, or as a form of defence against dogs and ruffians.
This is a substantial cane, made from cherry wood, it has a silver collar which is hallmarked for 1894. It would possibly have had a silver tip at some time, but this is now missing. This type of stick would have been owned by a gentleman of average means.
There are no splits or cracks to this stick. The cane does have some scuffs to the wood.
Dimensions: 90cm long
