I have a gold ornate walking stick with the Acorn symbol with a S shape in the middle a 2 in a circle and the number 1247 engraved on the handle. Does anyone know what company this hallmark can be?

I've managed to locate a couple of acorn marks, but unfortunately can't for the life of me, see an acorn that even remotely resembles an acorn with a skewered letter S inside of it.

I appear to have a walking stick with the same markings. Came from my grandfather's estate. Acorn with skewered S inside, 2 inside a circle, number 50 with "A" superscript. Ever learn anything about it? johnshortATusaDOTcom

Ebony Walking Stick
by: Anonymous

Hi thank you for writing in with the following question:

"I have an ebony walking stick that was given to a Shriner in 1897 that has a gold crown on the top. It does not have the carat marked, but has the following: a symbol that looks like an acorn with an S in it with a bar coming from top right through the S. Also marked 50 with an A close by, and then a 2 with a circle around it. Would really love to know more about this if you can help. Your time is appreciated very much! Sincerely, Dave Sawyer at: davescivilwar@hotmail.com"



Hi we actually have an old carved ebony walking stick in storage that we picked up many years ago on our travels in Egypt.

Ebony is a general name for very dense black wood. In the strict sense it is yielded by several species in the genus Diospyros, but other heavy, black (or dark colored) woods (from completely unrelated trees) are sometimes also called ebony.

Some well-known species of ebony include Diospyros ebenum (Ceylon ebony), native to southern India and Sri Lanka, and Diospyros crassiflora (Gaboon ebony), native to western Africa.
Ebony is one of the most intensely black woods known, which, combined with its very high density (it is one of the woods that sink in water), fine texture, and ability to polish very smoothly, has made it very valuable as an ornamental wood.
