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. They became far more than just an accessory to assist with mobility, and more of a symbol of ones status and wealth. The bulbous grip of this cane has been relief carved with an American eagle perched on a shield, with the shield inscribed "P.D. Wright". The identity of Wright is unknown at this time. The grip is joined to the shaft with a brass band. The shaft is a dark hardwood with a contrasting tip protected by a modern removable rubber cover. It measures 35 inches overall.
Very good, the grip showing an attractively aged tone overall with some scattered hairline age cracks, and attractively aged brass band. The shaft shows a lightly worn dull tone with some scattered light handling marks.
