FROM AN AMAZING LOCAL ESTATE. This interesting cane or walking stick handle is well carved to resemble a foxhound.
The dog has inset rich brown and black glass eyes with lots of expression. The carver took great care in including details such as whisker holes, carving under the head , definition around the eyes and ears. The natural black lines of the bone blend well with the entire design. The carver went with the shape of the bone as can be seen with the nose.The head and neck fit into another carved part with a long inserted very old screw. It is probably of English origin and dates to the time when the hunt was done by the elite.
