French Folk Art Walking Stick or Cane Carved

French Folk Art Walking Stick or Cane Carved from One Solid Chunk of Wood

French Folk Art Walking Stick or Cane Carved
Most people tend to think of an antique cane, being used by an elderly person. However, beginning circa 1550 and running into the 1930s, canes were a decorative accessory that you would never leave the home without one. They would have been hand-carved out of various species of wood, such as the example we are offering here, or Horn, ivory, bamboo, ebony, tusks, or bone, porcelain, gold or silver etc. Look carefully just below the knob at the top and you will see fingers holding it. Nicely executed by someone who had a lot of time on their hands.
