A staple item for the refined Victorian gentleman was the walking cane also known as a swagger stick.
It was not just a walking aid but an accessory, it finished off ones dress and tied together the style, it could be marched, swung gracefully or shaken in defiance.
This one is smart yet simple, it has an ever so slightly tapered black laquered wooden stick with a hammered nickel on brass ball top finial, the end is also finished with a nickel on brass tip to protect the wood.
It is marked on the finial with WM in a shield shaped cartouche, it shows signs of wear but is still in good antique condition.
This cane belonged to a Lord within Nottinghamshire involved in some significant medical breakthroughs in the victorian era, I think this cane was probably shook in defiance more often than not!
Approx 33" length, finial has 4.5" circumference and the cane approx 2.5" circumference.
