Whip Fabulous Custom Design Sterling Silver Horse Head Cap & WWII Swagger Stick Known Provenance
We were amazed when we learned of this whip and were able to acquire it. This hunt whip was created by the late David Rhea, a Middle Tennessee artisan whose wife was a fox hunter. There is not another like it. The horse head cap is sterling silver, and the shaft, a WWII swagger stick, is constructed of ebony, and has five strong stainless steel bands. The entire whip is 24 3/4" long. The sterling horse head form cap is 1 3/4" from nose to mane and ears to its base. It has a wonderful weight and balance and the entire whip, including the threading and leather are in very good condition with some very superficial, light leather cracking. It is vintage. What a statement piece for the hunt field!
