This is a antique folk art carved Black Americana carved folk art head cane. The handle of the cane is a carved black mans head done with nice detail.The man has a high collar shirt on and its looks to be a bow tie. The cane is carved from one piece of wood and the age and patina to the head and the shaft is wonderful. There is very nice detail to the carving with the approiate wear one would expect from something that was used. There is no ferrule and never was one and there is wear towards the bottom of the cane as to be expected.
There is a crack of about 1on the base of the stick from use and very tight age drying lines on the shaft. The age and patina and color is fantastic. This is a great piece of Black Americana and would be a nice addition to a folk art collection of similar items. The cane is 35 1/4" tall, 3"across the top of the handle.Nice old cane and in very nice condition. Best color and patina to the wood from years of use and just being here. Not sure of type of wood used but is fantastic and is a hard wood.. Please look at all the pictures for canes of this nature and quality do not come up that often. Please enlarge all the pictures to get a better idea of what is being offered. Please look at all the pictures and read all the descriptions... I have many other folk art canes and others on currently.. Take a look at them also.
I ask that all payments be made within 3 days or less. If you are a NEW YORK STATE RESIDENT... WAIT for a invoice from ME.
Thats the one that has to be paid. Check out my other listings. All Items are subject to prior sale.Do Not Use A Antique Cane For Support. Many folks ask me if antique canes are OK to use. I do not believe that a antique cane should be used for support. When these were made it was more as a fashion statement and not a means of support. Everybody carried a cane in the days of old. Today, we have a obesity problem in this country, that was not the case back in the days of canes and walking sticks. The antique cane should be treated in the same manner. The item is pictured correctly, described correctly and not misrepresented. The item is on for 7 days. If I have truly missed something or omitted something on purpose... Which will NOT happen, that is a different story. All items are antique and used. There are going to be minor defects and scuffs and bumps.
Thats what happens to old things. (Look in the mirror)If something was broke and reglued or whatever and I did not call it.. You have a legit case.
I do not respond to threats and manipulation. That has happened several times in the last 2 months. If you can not follow the simple rules or think that they do not apply to you, please go elsewhere.
