Coming with a second identical taperstick purely with the same period makers mark for. So the first is fully hallmarked solid silver. Whilst the second may be solid silver or perhaps silver plate? A Victorian customer therefore probably requested a pair when there was originally one?Very rare indeed to some across a taperstick in the form of a palm tree. In fact Ive been unable to reference another, so a real collectors piece.
