A very nice silver and malacca sword cane curio with quillons. The decorated silver handle is 1 1/2" high and 1 1/4" in diameter, and there are traces of old French hallmarks. The shaft is malacca with a silver button fitting 4 1/2" down. At that point a 27" long engraved blade with twin blood-grooves and decorated quillons, (handguards),that snap open smartly, can be withdrawn. The steel blade is etched: "O. Adam & Co, Paris", and it is marked "Toledo", for the famous Spanish blade maker. The cane ends with a 1 3/8" silver and iron ferrule. The overall length is 35 1/2" and the condition is very good. It is ca 1910, and comes from the fine collection of Dr. Lawrence Pinkner. Estimate: $1500-$2500.
