This is a wonderful antique cane or walking stick featuring a beautifully worked “repoussé” gold plated handle. There is a blank “cartouche” where one would inscribe a name for presentation, but this is uninscribed. The handle measures 4 1/8” in length by 2 1/4” in height - the cane measures 32 1/2” in height, including the handle. The cane appears to be made of a black lacquered wood. It has a rubber tip over the metal tip at the bottom. It is in very good condition - some light scratches to the wood, very minor, but the gold plating is intact with no noticeable wear. There are a couple of small dings to the head of the handle (see last close-up photo). In addition, the handle is loose, but this just needs to be re-secured with the right type of glue. Beautiful example - very ornate work, probably circa 1890s.
