circa 1900 Ebony Walking Stick w/ solid Sterling Silver Pommel
a very nice circa 1900 Ebony Walking Stick with a solid sterling silver pommel that shows a few dents from years of long use. the shaft is virtually free of scrapes and scars…almost like it was never used; but the ferrule shows otherwise, as its bottom has worn through, exposing the ebony beneath. the stick is 35 1/4 inches long or tall and the shaft is 13/16 of an inch wide at the widest. the pommel is just just over 1 1/2 inches wide x 1 3/4 inches tall. the cane is fairly strong enough, enough for weight bearing, but its a walking stick. it has a brass ferrule that needs replacing for everyday use.
