Japanese Meiji Period Carved Thousand Faces Cane Walking Stick Silver Collar For Sale
From a wonderful St. Louis estate! A
finely carved Japanese "thousand faces" walking-stick or cane,
Meiji Period, 1868-1912. Silver collar of unknown purity (difficult to
test!). Likely sterling, but guaranteed 800 or better. The wood could
be mahogany or rosewood, or some other dark finish wood. Metal tip
appears to be original. Please see all photos as they are a large part of the description. Photos have been ENLARGED to show detail. See dimensions below.Hallmarks or signatures: none.
Dimensions: Cane measures 35.5" tall; handle measures 2.25" tall,
including silver collar; approximately 2" across.
Condition: Amazing detail: all faces with original expressions intact.
There are some chips and minor breaks (a half a nose is broken), and
one face appears to have been repaired. There is some white material on
two or more of the faces which I have not attempted to remove. A
couple of cracks, typical for items of this age. This cane has been
well loved and cared for. Please scrutinize the photos; I have provided
every angle. Cane is sound and all parts are secure with no "wiggle."
PLEASE NOTE: I am not able to offer International Mail service for this item.
