Wow. Here is a nice 14K Gold Ceremonial Conductor's Baton from 1893 for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep it for yourself!
Beautiful Conductor's Baton here. The baton was given to someone at a music festival in MN in 1893. Stiftungsfest is Minnesota's oldest German festival.
The baton was given to a T S Chor. The Baton has the following inscription on the middle band; "Geschenk Vom T S Chor Zum 25th Stiftungsfest, 3 Ten April 1893". Was represented to be 14K Gold on the bottom top and middle pieces at a high end auction. See in two spots on the metal pieces where has a "R" noted in a circle and then another mark below that. You be the judge of the gold content before acquiring. The baton also has what appears to be "YR" or "RY" on the top of the baton, you be the judge, see the pic.
Beautiful wood shaft. Could be R-Wood or some other wood. Very little finish loss from age or use. Very nice detailing work on the three gold metal pieces. The baton does not come with a case.
The Conductor's Baton is 1" across by the top, by 17" long, by 3/8" wide. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures. Don’t be shy to make an offer, we are always open to reasonable suggestions.
