"Belle Epoque Cane, Bamboo Niellé, Very Illustrated, With Silver Knob"Here is a superb elegant cane, end of the 19th century, apple knob, silver repoussé bearing its hallmarks, bamboo stock with many sections, a bamboo from the South of France, entirely engraved of many decors, section after section, emerging on a debarked background blackened. Beautiful invention, pretty model, but hard to photograph!
I describe, starting from the pommel:
2 floral rings, then large cartridge band engraved with the initials of the owner in cursive letters: perhaps L.P.B. Then 9 bamboo knots decorated with leaves, palms, a tulip .... Then: beautiful lady with a fan in her faux-ass dress, then, a pierrot serenading her, then the cottage of our dreams, then the castle of our ancestors, and finally, a butterfly leads us towards a sun flower.
Dimensions: 84cm x 3.5cm ...
Condition: good, no flaws, apart from a crack at the end, maintained by the brass ferrule
