This long whip has a staghorn handle with a raised "gatepusher" section on its top.
There is a silver button stamped "Callow & Son, Park Lane, London" on the heel of the horn.
There is a metal stud nead the tip of the horn - presumably to help with pulling gates

The hallmarks on both collars are quite rubbed.
The lower collar is engraved "J.W.A.", this whip came from Hooton Pagnell in Yorkshire, so these initials probably stand for Julia Warde-Aldam, a previous owner of the estate.

The rest of the long tapering whalebone shaft is covered in braided thread.
The whip has a replacement lash bound onto its end
