Here we have an amazing sword / dagger cane cane with a stag horn handle and blade with maker's marks. When you grab hold of this beauty, draw the sword and gaze at the blued and gilded blade, you can't help but imagine the gent meandering down the way, ready for any action coming his or her way. The patina is absolutely perfect, and tells a story that spans the centuries.
The rare sword cane comes out an estate of an antique cane collector in the Boston area. Based on research, the cane was likely made in the early to mid 1800s. I'm uncertain what the meaning of the markings on the blade. But they are fascinating.
The antique sword cane stands about 35" tall, and the diameter of the handle is about 1". As stated above, there is patina everywhere. There are two vertical cracks at the lower part of the cane, likely caused by the end of the sword driving into it a wood (see pics). Because of give in the cracked area, the sword has a slight lean at the top. The handle/sword piece stays in shaft in most positions, but is a little loose from the centuries. 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 rare cane from the 1800s.
Sword canes are the bees knees. Mid-1800s? Now you're cooking with hot sauce.
