Walking stick, anoniem, c. 1795 - c. 1805

Hout, ivoor, buffelhoorn, l 86cm. More details

Vines, from which grapes grow, are warped (twisted) by nature. This walking stick, made from such a vine, was not intended for support during walking. Rather, it was a fashionable accessory to attract attention. The use of ivory and buffalo horn for the handle show that this was an expensive purchase.

On display in room 0.9-Z8.11
