This walking stick, we believe, was produced in France. It has an inscription with the date, August 3, 1897, presented to Lewis Boisell. The gold is marked with a 2 in a circle, 49A and a makers’ mark in a cartouche that we have not identified. The stick measures 37 inches long. The craftsmanship exhibited in the hand chased knob is of the finest quality a gentleman of high esteem would require. The shaft is made of fine ebony wood. Please pardon the glare on the photos. CONDITION: There is a hardly noticeable indent on the gold knob that is mentioned for accuracy. The ebony shows light wear from use. It is in original condition without restoration.

This box is silver plate from the United States or possibly England of the Victorian era. The marking on this sewing box is partially obliterated, but we could make out the mark C&W on the bottom. We were unable to identify the marking. It measures 4 inches high, 3 inches deep and 1 7/8 inches wide. The box has 3 drawers. One is marked pins, one for needles and one for buttons. There is a little kitten figure on the top of the box. The silver plate is etched with a decorative pattern on top. It has little ball feet. Condition: Most of the silver is worn off. It could be re-plated if desired. Or, enjoy it just the way it is.
