SOLD Folk Art Cane with Whippet Handle

Folk Art Cane with Whippet Handle

Made from what looks like a branch of curly willow or a sturdy vine, this 32-1/2”- tall cane is stained and varnished a rich brown with reddish undertones. A carved dog with a long pointed muzzle that resembles a Whippet forms the handle. The piece is in good condition, with modest wear to the finish, as the photos show, and a split at the tip. American. Ca. 1920s-30s.


Note from Jean:
This is one of five folk at canes that I’m adding to the Gallery in the next few days.
