Ivory and Sterling Cane
View More
This is an Elephant Ivory with Sterling Overlay Handled walking stick. The old ivory and silver make quite a contrast. It has a L shaped handle with sterling overlay on the end and a sterling cap and collar. Ivory has a patina that comes from age. There is minor loss to some of the overlay, minor denting to the end cap on the handle. Handle is 1' tall from the collar. 4 1/2" long, joined to a real sharp dark rosewood shaft that is in great condition and ends with a black horn ferrule (a replacement). The cane is 36" tall.

Capped in ornately engraved and chased gold, this interesting old cane dates to the late 19th century, and we note it's additionally engraved Jacob Falk, From His Son. The cap leads down to a very nice tapered ebonized - or ebony - stick, with great black color, currently without a cap at the end. Overall condition is very good, with appropriate wear at the tip and a handful of dents at the top cap, though it's still very much intact. The cane measures 35" long.
