A unique, early 20TH century silver pommel, liquid measuring cane. Suggested use as an alcohol rule for measuring levels in casks . Made by the measuring instrument maker L.Long of London.
Assay for London with what appears to be 1912. Date letter held but very rubbed.
Measurements on the fruit wood cane are in imperial gallons and marked up to 16 gallons. Original brass & metal base ferrule.
The cane is in lovely condition for age yet, showing appropriate wear for age. Silver pommel holds a slight ding on the side and very slight silver tear at the bottom collar of the pommel otherwise in lovely condition.
