This attractive 19th century drover whip measures just under 9 feet in length and retains the original Weaver & Bardall / Drover Whip copper plate on the butt. The whip remains in pleasing condition, flexible with especially nice display eye appeal. With good age and evidence of originality, our illustrations will do best to describe this piece except to offer a word about the makers. Longtime local Allegheny, Pennsylvania whip manufacturer Charles A. Weaver became the moving force in the firm of Weaver & Bardall, when it set up shop in Moundsville, West Virginia in 1877. Here the firm had secured a contract with the West Virginia State Penitentiary to operate within the prison walls utilizing convict labor. An interesting article on West Virginia’s use of Penitentiary labor, management conditions and inmates in the April 18, 1886 Wheeling Register article Tales of Lawless Life Told by Life Prisoners Etc. by Special Correspondence of the Sunday Register. An outstanding piece of 19th century Americana. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
