Description

London 1894 Victorian English hallmarked solid silver mounted leather gentleman's whip by famous makers Swaine Adeney of London, in business since 1750, and whip makers to the Royal Family since the reign of George III.
Made with repousse designed solid silver top and collar, with leather hand shaped handle, and whale bone whip core, covered by braided whalebone, horsehair or catgut.
The collar is engraved "to D.F. Charrington, Esq., by the stablemen and gardeners, 1897." This would have been a very expensive purchase at that time, so Mr Charrington would have been a member of the gentry and held in the highest regard.
Swaine Adeney have been the finest traditional whip makers in England since Georgian times, and are still making whips by hand in their workshops. They continue to hold the Royal Warrant by appointment to the Royal Family, a prestigious mark of recognition, and make the finest available equipment for hunting and riding.
Size-35.5 inches long by 7/8 inches wide.
This is a really lovely item of interest to those with equestrian interests, collectors, or designers. It would make a great piece to display in a gentleman's library or den.
In very good condition.
