I recently bought a hunting whip in a bric a brac shop and am trying to find out a little more about it. I believe due to its length and construction it is probably a reasonable age, but almost all the marks are so worn I am unable to tell whether the collar is even silver (though I think it is) let alone any further information about date/location.
You can see there is a clear WS in an oblong with the corners missing, but the two others are rather rubbed. It looks as though there may have been a third mark which has rubbed off entirely as there is a faint outline of a rectangle, probably not visible in the photo.
I would be most grateful if anyone could apply their experience and expertise to tell me more about these marks!
