Great Marine Cane-New England, circa 1850-Turned and carved ivory handle on a single piece baleen shaft with a metal ferrule. Hardly encountered in the widespread marine repertoire, this cane survived in all orig­inal condition. Indeed, ever since the Mayflower deposited the Pilgrim Fathers on the shores of Cape Cod in 1620, New Englanders have been fascinated by their marine heritage with the marine canes flourishing at a time when whaling was a respectable and entirely natural part of life. This cane is representative for the golden age of whaling and beau­tifully emphasized by a one and half century old patina. It is the matching pendant to the previous one and has the same provenance.-H. 4" x 1", O.L. 36 ½" $1,600-$2,500
