Folk Art Walking Sticks and Canes

Folk art sticks are notoriously difficult to define. Antique folk art covering the period of late 17th century to early 20th century can be found originating from all parts of the globe, made from a number of materials such as wood, bone, horn etc. (materials that were readily to hand and often inexpensive for the artisan or hobbyist). Regularly made from a single branch, but also could have been made from a mixture of materials as can be found with marine and whaler canes. Often depicting animals and people, the carving can be amusing, disturbing and even educational.
