Brass bolster plates (one missing, other over cleaned) attached by large central rivet. Wooden handle decorated by 7 thin brass washers (more likely deep inlay since it is completely missing in areas of heavy cleaning). Handle cleaned to a smooth surface (affecting the shape noticeably). Boot cap terminal engraved with standing figures (some corrosion, but mostly visible). Terminal plate and a knop. Very little cleaning damage to terminal. Handle and terminal with flat back and curved sides with crease in the front (flat bottomed tear-drop shape). 8 1/2in.
