Vintage Bakelite Eagles Head Umbrella or Walking Stick Handle. Length 19.5cm. Width 8cm.

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. 

This beautifully moulded eagle's head has glass eyes.

For the collector, a superb example in excellent condition.
