a well used Antique Ebony Hooked Cane, w/ a sterling silver Greyhound Handle
a wonderful circa 1900 Ebony Hooked Cane with a csterling silver handle that features a greyhound. This cane was used and loved for a long time, as you can see an old repair [in silver] in the neck of the handle AND, the ferrule: where the original cracked and a 2nd ferrule was placed over the 1st, and now, it has worn through. The handle sports several hallmarks; I got it from a dealer in Tallinn, so I am guessing it was made in Russia. The cane is 35 inches long or tall. the ebony shaft is 5/8 of an inch wide. the cane is very strong, easily enough for weight bearing. it has 2 ferrules [but both are worn through and need replacing].
