From the estate of an avid collector of all manner of antiques (rustic cast iron to Tiffany glass - and EVERYTHING in between, including historical items). Based on the quality of the estate, I have no doubt that this is a quality item, potentially antique.
I hope that the photos will reveal it's story and I love to learn, so I welcome any comments or information that viewers can provide. Obviously, the carving is of superior quality - you can even see realistic texture detail on the tongue. The mouth mechanism is nice and tight - although I have been very careful when opening/closing, so as to preserve it ---- and I would certainly not let admirers or kids open and close it at will. It is in remarkable condition and will hopefully be preserved for decades to come! Dark amber colored glass eyes.
The cane itself is very simple and I do not know the wood species - it actually almost seems like bamboo or rattan that is used in furniture (more like rattan, as there are no joints like would be found on bamboo). Please open all photos in full/enlarged size as they provide an accurate depiction (but absolutely do not do justice to what this piece looks like in person).I was lucky to get a few items from this estate that I will be listing over the coming weeks, including one more cane (and to view hundreds of items that I will likely never see again). About 35.5 tall from tip of ear to bottom of tip (with rubber cover removed). Almost 2.75" from tip of nose to the back of the head and head is about 1.5" at the widest point (not including the ears).
