Bakelite Parrot's Head Walking Stick or Umbrella Handle. Mottled brown plastic handle with moulded parrot's head terminal. Length 11.5cm Width 10cm.
A walking stick or cane was an essential part of every well dressed man's wardrobe in the nineteenth century, and his collection of walking-sticks were probably kept just inside the hall in a stand, sharing space with umbrellas.
Walking-sticks and canes derive from the cudgels and staves carried for defence, evolving into dress accessories topped with silver or ivory, with a ferrule at the point to cut down wear. Many had elaborately carved heads.
Condition: Excellent. For the Collector.
