This is an important artifact, a gorgeous gold topped walking stick presented to the reigning Heavyweight Champion by a local Boston secret society. The unique 38-inch ebony cane features an outstanding cast and carved, elegantly engraved gold handle that reads: “JL Sullivan By His Irish Friends of the Pueblos 1883” This item by descent within the family that owned a Dorchester bar that Sullivan frequented. The bar owner partnered/financed some of Sullivan’s ventures, not all were successful; he received this artifact as payment for a failed business arrangement. The cane remained in this family for 112-years according to the signed and notarized statement of provenance. This cane and other Sullivan artifacts were consigned to us nearly 20-years ago. We are pleased to again be afforded an opportunity to present Sullivan’s personal cane for sale. (Overall: 37.5”)
