Folk art is a uniquely personal manifestation of emotion expressed in a hand-made craft and this one-of-a-kind cane is a beautiful example.
Carved from a single piece of golden-yellow wood, this substantial and sturdy walking stick features two coiling snakes.
The snakes have a wonderfully dimensional texture and bear a rich, dark finish. This darker color was likely acquired by lightly burning the surface of the wood. The body of each snake bears shallow chisel marks that give them the appearance of having scales.
The cane has a nice, smooth finish and slightly angular top making it very comfortable to hold and walk with. Its height and weight make it ideal for daily use, but it is sure to make an excellent display piece as well.
Despite some expected cosmetic wear and signs of age, this cane remains in excellent vintage condition.
