Japanese Swagger Stick Silver Top

Post by AlanH on August 31st 2015, 11:50 am

Morning folks, this was given to me and the donar thought it was a WW2 officers swagger stick. A bit beaten up but is anyone able to shed any info as to what the marks represent?
I am selling it to support Brain Tumour research, so the more info I have, the easier to get a fair price.
Many thanks,
Alan.

Looks like Japanese characters. Or might be Chinese silver.

Yes please Naomi, that's very kind of you. The top is about 40mm diameter and the cane is total length of 83 cm.

It's Chinese, late Qing Dynasty (c.1900). Unfortunately not much value due to its condition.
