This whimsically wonderful cane or umbrella handle is a wonderful example of carved wood and bakelite laminated together. The dog head once adorned the top of either a cane or an umbrella, and has now been separated from it. It can be mounted on a plinth as sculpture, used as a handle for a magnifying glass, or return to service as a cane or umbrella top. Approximately 2.5" tall and one inch wide, the detail is astonishing, and the expression--timeless. Glass eyes complete the realistic effect. 1930s date.
