Hello All -
I recently picked up an antique cane at a flea market, and I was wondering if anyone could help me with some identification.
From research I was able to do online, it seems that the cane was marked by the Birmingham (England) Assay Office in 1910.
I have not been able to identify the maker’s mark and I have no idea what type of wood this is. One site I found had a similar looking wood and it said that it maybe a wood known as “Congo Pearl” or perhaps it was sweet chestnut with the knobs being created by using a “distresser” while the wood was growing.
Any help identifying the maker, wood, or adding any info at all will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for any help!
