Antique Late 19thc End Of Day Clear Black White Glass Walking Stick Parade Cane:
Antique Late 19thC End of DayClear with an Opaque White with Black EdgesBlown Glass Walking Stick Parade Cane
In the late 19thC glassmakers ended their work day creating a variety of objects from the leftover materials used for making other glasswares. Master craftsmen were allowed to "play" with glass on their own time and create objects for their on use, enjoyment or to improve their skills. These "end of the day" creations demonstrated their great skill and control over molten glass. Given their fragile nature canes were rarely used for walking although they were occasionally used ceremonially in parades. Glass canese were rarely documented to their maker.
We recently acquired a nice collection of these blown glass walking stick parade canes that we will be listing.
Up for offers is this antique late 19thC End of the DayClear, Black & Whiteblown glass walking stick parade cane. The color of glass is clear with a band of opaque white with black edges that twist all through the cane from the top to the bottom. The clear glass is completely smooth and straight. The cane measures 49 1/2" high and is 3/8" at it's widest at the top of the cane and the bottom is 5/8". The canes handle is shaped in what I would call a rats tail.
Thedesign and white and black spiral twist of this parade walking stickis beautiful.
Condition is very, very good witha smooth end on the top portion and some very slight roughness at the tip, which I believe was the way the cane was made.
Please seeour other glass canes weare listing.
How interesting a collection of all these different colored glass canes would make in an umbrella stand, out of harms way.
Shipping will be $19.00, to anywhere in the USA.
I am a very good glass packer and I will take extra special care to make sure your glass cane arrives safely.
