A plaited leather hunting whip by the kings of whip-making 'Swaine.'
This is probably best suited to a gentleman rather than a lady as the horn handle is 6" long (vs 4.5-5" typically on a ladies' whip) but the shaft is not too thick.
It's in good condition though there is a nick in the plaited leather shaft (photographed) about halfway down & is priced accordingly.
It measures 18 1/2" in length on the solid shaft, or 24" including the keeper. It doesn't come with a thong but these can be bought separately.
The horn handle is 6" long.
The diameter at the half-way point is 2 1/8" in circumference.
