The top of this whip is a finely carved ivory hound's head with inset glass eyes.
There are two collars of braided thread, between these the grip of the whip is covered in black braided whalebone or balleen.
The rest of the whalebone shaft or stock is covered in braided thread.
There is a replacement braided lash at the end.
The whip is not very long - possibly it was intended for a child?
Please note, while it is legal to buy and sell antique ivory, it is very difficult and expensive to export outside the E.U.
