Pre WW1 swagger cane. Unhallmarked silver, so probably made in India or Malta.

I enjoy looking at these beautifully hand-crafted items. The swagger stick I donated to the Border Regiment Museum had a snooker cue ball on it.

That was a well-crafted item, I just wish I took some photos of it before donating it.

How about this then! - a VICTORIAN swagger cane top. Note "Queens' crown", plus 11 - not 13 battle honours, hence pre Boer War. Again un hallmarked silver - India/Malta?
