Before the official formation of the SIS (Secret Intelligence Service) in England in 1909, there were still many defenders in the service of Her Majesty and the crown. This magnificent cane is an example of just the type of clandestine piece which would have been carried by Queen Victoria’s secret bodyguards. All of the lavish metal adornments on the exterior of this piece have been expertly plated in 24-Karat gold and then antiqued. The strong shaft is stained and highly-polished Indian Rosewood. Without a doubt the most gorgeous cane ever offered by Windlass Steelcrafts. Has a rubber anti-slip cup on the base. Ships in a presentation box. Not meant to be used for medical purposes. Also available as a sword cane.
