787: Cane, eagle carving, James Cowell owner
Cane with a carved walrus ivory knop in the form of an eagle's head made all the more ferocious appearing by the spurious addition of numerous teeth.

Mahogany is used for the finely turned and polished shaft terminating in a medium sized, well fitted ferrule of bass with iron tip. Mid 19th century. N.B.- The individual credited with giving lectures casting dispersions on Shakespeare being the true author of his works was named James Cowell. Size: 34.25" L. x 4" W. Weight: 11oz
Condition: Very good noting only some separation of the joinery of the conforming, tapered collar.
