Late Victorian Walnut Cane/Walking Stick
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 cane is made from walnut, it a simple design. 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 finish and patina is very good.
