Antique 1918 Anglo Indian / African Walking Stick With Carved Snake Decoration. This is a good quality stick, which I think is of Indian origin as the snake looks like an adder to me.
However the small carved band beneath the handle is reminiscent of African tribal work. The stick has the date 1918 carved into it but this could have been added later when the stick was bought or given as a gift.
Until I found the date my gut feeling was that the stick was a 19th century piece. The stick is in excellent condition with no warping or damage.
The leather thong is missing but could be replaced. The item "Antique 1918 Anglo Indian / African Walking Stick With Carved Snake Decoration" is in sale since Thursday, February 18, 2021. This item is in the category "Antiques\Woodenware\Walking Sticks/Canes".
