This long slim whip has an ivory and silver handle.
It is antique, so can be legally sold in the UK but would be very difficult to export.
It has a silver cap and collars, both have foliate repoussé decoration and hallmarks for London 1887.
The collar has a shield which is engraved with a monogram and the date 1888.
Between the collars the handle is made of ivory carved to resemble holly.
The long tapering whalebone shaft is covered in braided thread, this is frayed around its lower third, but could be lacquered to prevent further fraying.
The whip has its original fine vellum and silk lash at its end
Dimensions : Length not including lash 31½" (80cm)
Weight 46g (1½ oz)
Ref : whip1449
