Walking Stick - For Sale

Walking Stick
Price: $575.00
An unusual gadget walking stick shaped like a putter, with celuoid handle simulating bone (the putter end), silver collar (hallmarked), and partridge wood shaft, sometimes referred to as a ''Sunday Putter''. Since playing golf was banned on Sundays in some places in Great Britain, a gent could turn his walking stick upside down and swing the club on the way to church. Partridge wood is one of the very fine woods for making shafts. In its natural state it is smooth, but it is often embellished by a labor intensive practice whereby every few inches a ridge is carved around the cane and a blackened line is formed making the shaft into what is called ''stepped partridge''. The wood is obtained from tropical portions of the western hemisphere. Partridge wood is also a name given to the dark colored and striated wood of a variety of Palm tree and is used for walking sticks. The condition is excellent except for the silver collar which shows minor distressing. English, circa 1900, 36'' L., 4 1/2'' Long handle.
