Victorian ‘Prostitute’s’ Dagger by Whites, London
An excellent original Victorian period dagger made by Whites of London, in the style of a 16th century dagger, similar to those used by prostitutes for self protection. The dagger measures 14 ¼ inches overall, one piece bone or ivory grip, copper decorated ferrule, bronze cross guards with swept down quillons and ball top pommel. Has a 10 inch long double edged blade which tapers to a rounded point which originally would have been to the point, maker marked ‘Whites London’. Scabbard is sadly missing. A really interesting dagger, Victorian period edged weapons were often made in the form of medieval or renaissance period weapons. Something different that does not often come up, worthy of more research.
