Ben Cox of London made this handsome walking stick that a gentleman could wear with his top hat and tails. Picture Fred Astaire stepping out in the evening.
Ben Cox was a top cane maker in London and it shows in the quality of this cane. It's English Hallmarked for London 1921 - and is also marked 12ct gold. The shank is tapered and made of a rare wood called snakewood. The ferrule is ox horn.
The top has engraved initials "GGS". The length is 37 1/2" from top to bottom. The condition is very good. There are a few small scratches in the gold on the top, but it detracts very little from its elegant appearance. It is quite a rare find!
This exciting store is an eclectic "Curiosity Shop" for the Lover of wonderful old things.
