Provenance

The antiques world would describe this lovely little ring piton as being in 'mint condition' as it has never been used despite being 50 to 60 years old. We are pretty sure that the initials RC on the leaf blade stand for Riccardo Cassin who probably made it around 1960 and it is one of the many that Mick Tighe collected somewhere along the way.
