Folk Art Cane, Relief Carved, Outstanding Composition and Surface
Unknown Maker
19th Century - SOLD

Antique Folk Art Cane, Relief Carved, 19th Century, entire view 1

The handle is a hatted man waiting 1820's style coat standing on barrel; perhaps falling down drunk! The shaft with intertwined vine and clover centering milk-maid with cow, other human figures and barnyard animals displays a wonderful dark finish with great patina. An outstanding aesthetic; appears to have been carved of wood with soft center whereas there is definitive evidence of fill limited to a lower section of the core. The raised trailing vine and carvings were not compromised; ancient restoration now with perfectly matched color and patina. An examiner may likely miss the repair during inspection as we initially did. The cane is complete with custom display base.

An outstanding example featuring a fruitwood grip above an eagle carved with heart drop horn ferrule applied with brass upholstery tacks. The shaft is entirely carved and features crossed American flags centering the above mentioned heart, a rattle snake seizes an alligator's tail; a jack knife; a banded-keg above a bird above a full length figure of a man with gun. Also ornamenting this remarkable effort is a dog, a bird sitting atop a cane, and long leafy vines.
