This excellent Victorian sword cane has a deer antler handle with an ornate silver collar. The silver collar has a cartouche faintly engraved with the owner’s initials, “J. N.”
The 695mm double-edged blade tapers to a spear point. The blade is in very good condition and is crisply etched with stylised flowers, foliate scrollwork and trophies of arms. The obverse is similarly etched and includes a different stand of arms and a cartouche containing the word “Toledo.”
The blade is held firmly within the body of the cane and fits snugly, without rattle or play.
The cane has a white metal and iron ferrule with almost no wear. The ferrule looks to be original to the cane and suggests that the cane was rarely used as a walking stick.
The cane is in great condition and has no damage or cracks. There is some minor wear consistent with its age.
Total length 896mm.
