Very nice, hand carved walking/shaman stick
Deer antler & wood with fur (Rabbit?)
This would be lovely as decor for a cabin, lodge, western decorated home. Very unique and pretty detailed considering the medium used for hand carving. Measures approx: 48" long at its tallest point/antler with the cane/stick base measuring approx: 1" across. This appears to be a natural stick/branch in unfinished condition with natural characteristics and a few cracks. Perhaps as it grew/was harvested or the drying process...I suspect juniper? not positive. Carving and upper handle is deer antler with a horses head holding a braided piece of leather as a bridle/lead type of decoration accent. Farther down the wood was wrapped in animal fur (I think rabbit). Would be great as a Shaman style stick. I wouldn't use this as an actual cane for someone who needed support physically in walking because of the awkward way the antler fits in the hand, some age to the piece and natural growth characteristics:cracks, knots, etc...this is more of a decoration conversation piece. I know any collector would be happy to have this unique and finely detailed stick/cane. Thank you for stopping by!
Condition: Its a handmade/carved piece, not "mint" and the mediums used (wood/antler/leather/fur) may indeed have imperfections because they are not man made-manufactured. It could use some cleaning up but I will leave that to the new owner as I am unsure of the best way to do that. I don't know an actual year it would've been carved/made. There is a rubber standard cane type tip on the bottom. Wood is curvy in nature, slight bow toward front not straight up and down. Shipping will be parcel post to keep expense down but please recognize that due to the nature/size of antler/length of the stick? Its going to be considered "large" by the post office. PLEASE NOTE: I do NOT jack up shipping prices in order to make more money as so many sellers seem to do...Ebays shipping calculator is almost always wrong and 99% of the time I eat any difference. Up to 5.00 on a package this long/sized. I pay for delivery confirmation and insurance in the amount of auction final value.
