This is a Victorian whalebone whip for a lady
Its cap and collar are made of braided silver wire.
There is a small dent in the top of the cap.
The handle of the whip is covered in finely braided black whalebone or balleen.
The rest of the very fine shaft is covered in braided thread, possibly catgut.
The end of the shaft is very flexible indeed , I suspect the whalebone inside has weakened over time
