19th Century Bulls Pizzle Whip
We are proud to offer a late 19th Century bulls pizzle whip, with bone hand. This item is made from a bull’s penis. The whip would have been made from stretching the penis and leaving it in water to expand naturally. Once at full length the item would have been left to in the sun to dry and then customised to the farmer’s needs. It was used to move cattle around the farm, the scent of the bull’s sizzle whip would scare the cows and thus allowing the farmer to move them around more effectively. A unique piece due to its hand carved handle.
Size in inches: H 25” x W 1” x D 1”
Origin: English
Period: 19th Century
Material: natural material
Condition: This item is completely solid in structure and form if not a bit worn and weathered due to its obvious age. A wonderful natural patina and fading of the surface have taken place over the years. The handle has a few natural aged splits in it, and then of the whip is worn and faded due to its years of use. Close up photos have been supplied to illustrate these points so please observe carefully and propose questions to us if needed.
