BAMBOO BURR ROOT WALKING STICK WITH CHINSES CARVINGS AND CHINESE LETTERING. A vintage walking cane features a burr root top with hand carved carvings/portraits to the bamboo shaft. The stick is in very good condition and was my late mother's. It has been in the loft for years and now it needs a new and good home to go to.
She told me it was a present to her in the 1940s from a friend who got it second hand. There is a Chinese inscription carved in it. I have no idea what it means. The figures in the stick seem to be a house, a woman and a child. There is a monkey at the bottom of it.
The ferrule is missing but one can be inserted on easily. I have not polished, buffed or tried to enhance the stick. It is solid with some superficial blemishes you cannot even see.You can see some silver spray type paint at the bottom but again I have not attempted to remove it in case I cause damage. No doubt there is something that will take this off. If you wish more photos please just ask.
I have tried to photograph it so that you can see everything including the silver paint. It will be sent on by HERMES in a protected cardboard tube. This item is in the category "Antiques\Woodenware\Walking Sticks/Canes". The seller is "jimmypunter" and is located in this country: GB.
