Hello, I've only just joined. Is there anybody out there that can help with any ideas about what this elephant's head handle is made from?. It definitely isn't wood. The cane is made from bamboo with a nice silver band beneath the handle. This has a Chester assay mark on it. The cane is Victorian. I'd be very grateful for any help, thanks in advance. mickeyb Wood Household hardware Plumbing Handle Terrestrial animal

Like the others I would guess it is a horn of some kind.

Are there any tests that can be used to determine what type of horn has been used or is it just experinced eyes and touch

Thanks for that CV3, I'm trying get a definitive opinion to help me advertise it for sale. As you would expect people want to know what things are made of. I was hoping maybe Rams Horn as this material pushes the price up appreciably. Is there any safe way to test? Many thanks, mickeyb
