Item Details
Description
Tom Thumb Presentation-Dated 1872-This cane was recently purchased out of a home in the Northeast and is fresh to the International cane market. The ornate silver collar has the following presentation, "Presented to Nate Salsbury by Tom Thumb 1872". Mr Salsbury was an early entertainer and circus promoter along with P. T. Barnum. Later in life he teamed up as the general manager with Buffalo Bill for the Wild West Show and ended up owning the Buffalo Bill Show. The realistic ivory boxing glove appears to have been copied closely by a pair of miniature boxing gloves which were purchased out of the same house. The shaft is a very rich dark Malacca and it has a brass ferrule. Gloves will accompany this lot.-H. 3" x 2" x 1 ½", O.L. 34 ¾"-$15,000-$18,000
