This fine whip has a curved ivory handle.
It is antique, so can be legally sold in the UK but would be very difficult to export.
It has four silver collars along its length in the Georgian or early 19th Century style (see the image of a Georgian whipmaker's trade card below).
The first collar is engraved with some initials - possibly "HC"
The shaft of the whip is covered with finely braided thread and there is a raised spiral pattern under the braiding of the grip.
It would originally have had a braided silk lash at its end but this has been replaced with an elegant fine stitched leather keeper
Dimensions : Length including keeper 25¾" (65.5cm)
Weight 42g (1½ oz)
Ref : whip1457
£145.00 (+ £4.85 insured shipping within UK which should take 24-48 hours),
Please note : although antique, it is almost impossible to ship ivory outside the UK
