A VICTORIAN GOLD-MOUNTED WALKING-STICK
MARK OF THOMAS JOHNSON, LONDON, 1888, 18CT, RETAILED BY BRIGG AND SONS
The handle spiral-fluted, the plain top engraved with an initial 'P' below a duke's coronet and inscription 'FROM FALMOUTH', marked on terminal, further stamped 'BRIGG'
40 1/8 in. (102.4 cm.) long
The initial is that of William Cavendish-Bentinck, 6th Duke of Portland (1857-1943).

The inscription almost certainly refers to either Evelyn Boscawen, 7th Viscount Falmouth (1847-1918) or his father Evelyn Boscawen, 6th Viscount Falmouth (1819-1889).
