This beautiful cane is inscribed "Col, Geo T.M. Davis/from/A FRIEND/JUNE 1866" on top of the grip, for George Turnbull Moore Davis (1810-1888). According to correspondence held in the Libraries of Congress, Davis was, at the very least, an acquaintance of Abraham Lincoln, and likely met him during the time they were both in Illinois. The gilt knob grip has extensive floral motifs along with the inscription and is fitted to an ebonized shaft tipped with brass. It measures 35 5/8 inches overall. Very good, the grip retaining much of the bright polished gilt finish with a few scattered minor dings. The shaft is also very good with some scattered minor handling marks and flakes.
