This dark finished, knobby wood hunt crop has a beautiful patina. Its age is unknown, but it is at least, a vintage whip, and probably, an antique. The shaft is highlighted by an engraved, sterling band that dates from the 1800’s. The leather loop is modern and in good shape. The shaft is 17” long, about .5” wide and surprisingly lightweight. The wooden hook is 4.5” long & substantial. This would make an excellent whip for cubbing, rat catcher or walking hounds...with antique class.
