Description:

Beginning in approximately the 16th century, canes gradually became more popular among the upper echelons of society, reaching its pinnacle around the late-19th to early-20th centuries. Initially, the popularity of canes was mainly reserved for men, however, by the 20th century canes became a popular accessory for women as well. This piece is likely an example of a lady's cane with its floral patterns and more slender shaft. The antique ivory grip of this example has been expertly relief carved into a slender bouquet of roses. There is a German silver band where the grip meets the shaft, which appears to be of birch and is tipped with an iron and brass ferrule.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, the grip showing some patches of lightly aged coloration and the shaft showing some scattered light flakes with otherwise minimal handling evidence.
