Antique Walking stick with Compass.
A very unusual gentleman's walking cane with built-in compass. The shaft is made of hardwood, probably polished hickory or mahogany with a bone ferrule, silver collar and an ivory handle. The top of the ivory handle will unscrew to reveal a hidden German made compass. The silver collar has a Chester hallmark with S.B&S.T.L in an oblong chamfered rectangle. This is the maker's mark of S. Blanckensee & Son Ltd.
All in original condition, ivory handle does have a small crack.
