This whip has a silver cap with cast foliate decoration.
There are no maker's marks or stamps. I suspect it is Indian silver dating from the colonial era (It came in an auction lot with a piha kaetta knife from Sri Lanka).
The shaft or stock still has some flexibility but a previous owner has bent it into a loop for display - possibly it could be straightened with time, leather dressing and steam, but possibly not.
Dimensions : Length if it could be uncurled 27½" (70cm)
Weight 151g (5¼oz)
Ref : whip716
