Antique Shark Vertebrae Cane with Horn Handle | 1800s
Here we have an antique shark vertebrae walking cane with a horn handle. There are statement canes, and then there is this. Each segment builds up to a tall order of command. You literally grasp the thing by a horn. The 19th century cane is a sight to behold and a statement to be made. The rich nautical history in this relic is a mainline to mother ocean.
The rare walking cane came out of the estate of a collector in the Twin Cities area. It was likely created in the 1880s. I wish this beauty could talk.
The antique walking stick measures just over 34" tall. The horn handle measures just under 5". The cane has patina everywhere. Some of the vertebrae segments near the bottom are experiencing losses. There is a 1/2 inch of missing vertebrae at the bottom, exposing the internal metal rod. The bottom ferrule is cracked and doesn't fully encapsulate the metal rod. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship FedEx to street addresses in the continental USA (no PO Boxes please). Free shipping on the rare cane.
A true merging of the wild and civilization. Who's kidding who? Nothing's truly civilized, especially this cane. Welcome to the wild.
