You are viewing a lovely folk art carved wood walkingstick handle. The knob is a clenched fist holding a round object and having a cuff with cufflinks in it.
It's a fun, novelty handle which was probably carved some time in the 19th century. It is carved from a light colored dense wood, possibly yew or a fruitwood.
Unfortunately much of the shaft is missing having been broken at some point and there are lots of splits in what remains of the shaft. The wood has developed a great dark honey color over time and would look great in anyone's collection. What remains of the cane measures approximately 20 inches in length. The closed fist is approximately 1 1/2 inches wide at the widest point. Please refer to photos and feel free to ask any questions.
