Up for sale is a beautiful Victorian Sword Cane made by Wilkinson.

370 Collection discount will be 340 (South east England)


The cane has been well used by evidence of the worn silver band and sheep horn grip. I can tell that the owner was right handed due to the slight bend in the shaft due to leaning on the right.

The sword handles wonderfully as with the horn handle acting similarly to a piston grip that you find on modern fencing swords. The blade is triangular in design with an extremely sharp point.

The silver band is engraved but has been worn down. It has a 4 proofing marks, which I have not yet identified. As far as I can tell the inscription is as follows. "PRESENTED TO WILLIAM MSSOH BY THE MEMBERS OF THE **LSILL POLICE FIRE BRIGADE ON THE RETIREMENT 1897"

I have included a scan from the Wilkinson Catalogue from 1912-13 showing a selection of sword canes. This one in particular is described as "White Buckhorn Hook" Price in those days was 45/- (2-5-0)
