Massive 63" Nailsea Spiral Twist Shepherds Crook Walking Stick C1820 Antique Nr:
This very rare Nailsea twisted glass shepherds crook or walking stick measures 1600mm (63'') long and weighs 920 grams. It is made from two colour twist of white and red and is by far the largest glass walking stick I have come across and I wonder if it was designed for some ceremonial use religious or masonic? It dates to around 1800 and has a great colour to the glass similar to that found on early Georgian wine glasses. There is a large old chip to the handle that may have started life as thumb piece as it is in exactly the right place and I have taken close up shots of this (photos7,8&9). An amazing piece of early glass and rarely found at this length.
I have listed the postage below as very expensive as this is a Collection Only piece but if you would like to organise your own courier at your own risk I will pack it as instructed. I am based just outside the M25 (junction 18) north London
International buyers are always welcome to this sale. F.M.O.C. Postage outside the United Kingdom is at cost please contact me for a quote. Due to the recent large increase in UK postage rates I am happy for international buyers to arrange their own collection and domestic buyers to collect in person. Most international postage rates are listed as NOT signed for and NOT insured so if you require either please let me know and I will add it to your invoice. Sadly due to Italy terrible postage system I will always add £5.15 to the postage charge for signed for to ensure it reaches the customer. If the item is listed as " Signed for " on the postage then obviously it is already included. If you have any questions please do contact me.
