Antique Folk Art Walking Cane with Woman's Bare Leg Handle
Here we have an antique folk art cane with a woman's bar leg with stockings for a handle. I wish this little gem could talk. The surface wear leaves the entire piece with a full on attitude. It's a cool one. The unique folk art design is a a perfect representation of a bawdy time and place. Check out the slightly painted stocking lines. No need to present artificial bravado while leaning on this slim beast. You're already covered.
The rare folk art walking stick came out of an old folk art collection in Iowa. It was likely created in the early 1900s.
The wood walking stick measures just over 34" tall, and the cane handle measures about 3 1/2". There is perfect patina everywhere, including surface wear..There is a circular partition in the wood near the base of the handle (see pics). Not sure if it's part of the design or a defect. The cane is still solid, no movement. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship FedEx to street addresses in the continental USA only (no PO Boxes please). Free shipping on the rare walking stick.
