Is there a seam on it, that would help age it, certainly looks like a ferrule of some sort, to large for hair perhaps I think, walking stick looking likely as an ID

Possibly a little bit narrow for a walking stick so perhaps from a parasol or unbrella or even a whip (don't even go there - for a horse! :D)? ::g

Being that small a diameter I would favor a riding crop ferrule.

I am always amazed at how many of these things get ID'd as off a walking stick, just how likely are you to loose one walking across a field? Horses were the main mode of transport up until just over 100 years ago it would be far easier to loose a riding clop galloping across a field.
