A probably unique Peruvian or Mexican walking-stick

The walking-stick is overall decorated with veneered red stained tortoiseshell, inlaid with mother-of-pearl and silver stringing. The finials of the handle are decorated with silver floral filigree mounts.

The inlaid decoration is called as “Enconchado” or “inlaid with mother-of-pearl”.

The general condition is very good.
The overall patina is very nice and has a general old view.
Minor chips. No restorations visible.
