Heavy Antique Polished Black Ebony & Inlaid Gentleman's Walking Stick Cane. Absolutely unique and beautiful item from a bygone era. It is incredibly tactile yet at the same time incredibly heavy, hard and unyielding as are the useful characteristics of ebony. Whilst being a stylish accessory for a wealthy gent in Victorian days it would have proved a very handy defence weapon down a smoggy back alley..Stands an impressive 93cm and rather unusually the two ends appear to have been made from the same material which have stood the test of time well. Lovely condition with the ebony shaft maintaining a brilliant sheen to its solid grain whilst their is some minor yellowing to the carved.
General wear and tear commensurate with a piece of this age but with no major faults at all. Please see the attached photos for further details. Will be posted well wrapped and fully tracked. Please see my other listings. Should you have any queries, questions or observations or require any further information please don't hesitate to contact me and I will be very happy to help.
