Vintage Swaine Hunting Riding Whip, Riding Crop, Antler Handle.
An old stag horn handled riding crop made by Swaine. The shaft is covered with braided leather and has a silver plated collar marked 'SWAINE, Made In England'. It has a stitched leather keeper with leather pleated thong, thong length 64 inches.


Taken from an old 'Swaine Adeney Brigg' catalogue:
'Swaine & Adeney and Thomas Brigg & Sons amalgamated in 1943 in accordance with Government war-time policy, and thus was inaugurated a happy working partnership for both these old established houses.
James Ross founded the business of Whip Maker in 1750 and was succeeded by James Swaine in 1790. In 1840 the firm became Swaine & Adeney. The original founder, Ross, was honoured by Royal Warrant of Appointment as Whipmaker to H.M. King George III and the firm has been a Warrant Holder continuously since those days.
Mr. G.L. Adeney is a direct descendant of James Swaine, thus preserving an unbroken family connection since 1790.
The business of Thomas Brigg & Sons was established by Thomas Brigg, great-grandfather of the present Mr. B.W. Brigg.
Their first Royal Warrant of Appointment as Umbrella Makers was to H.M. Queen Victoria, and the most recent to H.M. Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother.
