Oak Ww2 Walking Stick Cane Hand Made Folk Art 1946 Okinawa Ebony Wood For Sale
You are offerding on a handmade walking stick or cane. It is about 36 inches in length. The walking stick has a brown paper wrapper
marked on the top T.T. and the tip 40-7-452, with the history of the walking
stick as follows:
“World War 2 cane from Okinawa.
This wood procured by Robert C. Humprhey, 108 Corbett St. Tarentum,
Pa. and received from him August 24, 1946. -He cut this wood from one of the
trees that grows on the southern end of the island. And the center of one of the hardest battles
of the Japanese War in the Pacific.—They are used primarily as windbreaks and
seem to thrive on this barren coral rock that makes up the principal soil of
the island. Handle – Sycamore from
California, Ebony from Africa and Peroba from Brazil. – Tip - Oak from Okinawa
Island—Black rings, Ebony –round inlays stained Maple. Cane made by W.A.
The background of the canes is they were made by W.A.
Hutchison of Trantum PA. He made a large
quantity of canes. The ones I have date
from around 1906 to the 1940’s. The wood
for the cane came from a variety of historic locations as noted on the one with
paper wrappers. I purchased this one along with a large lot of other canes at
sale. The cane was in a museum at one
time as it is marked with accession or inventory number on the tip, (i.e.
40-2-247). It is not uncommon, that when
museum’s close they do ship their inventory to other museums and do sell off
some of their inventory.
