Early 20th Century Swedish Walking Stick/Cane
Most gentlemen in the 19th and early 20th century would have carried a cane. Canes would rarely been used as a walking aid, as anybody at this time who had problems walking would have used a crutch. The cane was mostly used by gentlemen for affectation, or as a form of defence against dogs and ruffians.
This is a substantial cane, with a silver plated handle. The shaft is made from malacca. This type of stick would have been owned by a gentleman or lady of average means.
There are no splits or cracks to this stick. The cane does have some scuffs to the wood. The silver plated handle has some dinges.
Dimensions: 93cm long
