This offering is for an antique folk art cane. The cane is made from one piece of wood with a circular bent handle and four carved flutes running the length of the shaft. The cane measures 32.5 long and it retains it's wonderful original varnish surface. The raised flutes have writing on them, one reads "FROM COLBERT TO MAURINE WOMBLES 1918".A second one reads in part "YEA THOUGH I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH I SHALL FEAR NO EVIL THY ROD AND THY STAFF THEY COMFORT ME". There is another line of writing on a third flute that I think reads "ASK AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN KNOCK AND IT SHALL BE OPENED UNTO YOU". Some of the wording is hard to make out and I'm not sure he got all the wording quite right but his message is quite clear. The condition is excellent with no breaks, missing parts or repairs and only minor wear.
The varnish has nice crazing and a pleasant mellow patina. If additional photo's are needed or you have need of answers to questions we do not address we will be happy to supply them.
