Antique Swagger Stick with Bone Carving and Secret Sword
Regular priceSale price
Here we have a wicked antique swagger stick with a bone carving of a dog's head and secret sword. Whatever dude from the turn of the century who needed a beast like this will make anyone pause. The ornate carving of the dog with those "Jaws" eyes setting behind the wrinkles will draw them in or send them running for the hills. And that snout ready to snort.
Then you slowly draw out the slender sword, and you'll have everyone's attention. Do not zig when you should zag with this old fella. The casing made of leather wrapped in wire puts you straight at the crossroads. A gnarly, gnarly and epic piece of folk art.
The unusual antique swagger stick comes out of an old Iowa estate. It was likely made in the late 1800s or early 1900s. It's very possible the piece is military related.
The folk art swagger stick measures just over 18" long. The sword measures about 13" long. There is patina from age and use everywhere. It color and feel of the patina just makes sense given the mind behind this magnificent artifact. One of the ears has a very old piece of leather still attached. The other is missing the original piece. Feel free to get those ears flappin' again. 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). Free shipping on the antique swagger stick.
The secret's out. When the Man Comes Around, let the Man through. Unreal piece of old badass history.
