This is a special conductor’s ebony and sterling silver baton in its own fitted box. The box is of black leatherette with two securing clips at the front and is lined with a deep blue velvet and silk. The two halves of the baton have their own specific compartments and once removed, these can easily be screwed together to complete the full length for the baton. The main stick is of shiny black ebony with decorative sterling silver mounts on the handle at the top and middle section. The narrow ferrule at the end is also of sterling silver. All silver components are marked for London 1929 but the maker’s mark is rubbed. The entire item is in very good condition for age with minute marks on the ebony and a distinct indentation 1cm from the tip of the ferrule – one wonders whether this may have been caused by an irate conductor banging it down on his lectern in frustration with his inept orchestra! Length of box 10.25 ins (26cm). Length of baton 18.25 ins (46.5cm). Weight 196 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 264. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $38.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
