I also think it looks like my Davenport & Fordham Bill Howes rod, fittings very D&F like
Tony Fordham told me bought blanks from Chapman, Ogden Smith, JB Walker and Southwell

Beautiful finish :Hat: I do like that green/black jasper and yellow tippings with the golden cane.
Do you use colour preserver Harry?

Thanks everyone for the info and your kind words, I'm still none the wiser as to its original model but it has a new identity and it will be off to the Stour for its christening in the not too distant future. :Hat:

Superb! Do you mind me asking which threads and colours you used? Also what varnish you applied? I'm new to cane restoration and love the finish you've achieved :Hat:
