Lot 0008 Details

Description
8. Ivory Buttock Erotic Cane-Ca. 1890-Ivory ball knob with three erotic porthole-like panels with flower bands framing topped by three men organs in a star-like configuration. Micro carving with an incredible detail and superb undercuts, presentation silver collar, malacca shaft and a metal ferrule. This one-of-a-kind erotic cane is praised by age and a glorious surface luminosity and has that touch of eccentricity that never goes amiss. So far, so good, however, what makes this cane more unique is the engraving on silver collar probably memorizing an unforgettable “youngsters escape”. It shows a bottle “BURGUNDER” (Dark red wine) over the dedication “UNSEREM LIEBEN HERRN FELIX BAUMANN” (Our friend Mr. Felix Bauman) and the family names of seven friends on the left of the bottle “Freundenberg, Schreider, Knüppel, Krüger, Weiss, Koch, Ast, Grote” and seven others on the right “Grimmenstein, Pinowsky, Pestrup, Schote, Meyer, Stern, Thöl”. German silver hallmarks beside a “BL” makers mark.-H. 2” x 2”, O.L. 32 ¾”-$5,000-$6,000
