Spectacular Ivory Elephant Cane-Ca. 1880-Substantial ivory knob carved in fine and naturalistic detail to depict an elephant head with rugged skin, bent trunk flanked by two mighty tusks, tiny eyes and large ears. The bulk head is amazingly adapted to the form of the handle and comes with its plain silver collar on an ebony shaft partly carved with a twist and embellished with extensive ivory dot inlay. The profile of the handle speaks for an English origin while the adorned shaft seems to have Indian ties..-H. 4 ¼” x 2 ½”, OL. 33 ¾”-$2,000-$3,000
