HANDSOME SHARK VERTEBRAE WALKING STICK IDENTIFIED TO UNION GENERAL QUINCY A. GILMORE

$1,500.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: M22043

Base of the pommel has a ½” high silver ferrule ornately inscribed with the name “Q. A. Gillmore”. The cane’s 28” long, cylindrical vertebrae section is ¾” diameter at the top and tapers slightly down to ½” diameter.   The bottom four-inch tip portion of the cane is of bone that was machined-turned to resemble the real round discs. This was done to insure stability at the tip point as real bone discs would have broken apart from the weight.  A long metal cylindrical rod makes up the core of the cane upon which the hollow vertebrae were individually stacked.

The shark vertebrae cane exhibits a mellow light beige coloring and visible cracks, a few loose vertebra, stress points and chips overall along with the normal scuff and slight abrasion marks from use. Bone handle does suffer from a moderate crack starting at the ferrule. No metal reinforcing band on the cane’s point tip.  A simply wonderful and impressive example of a unique walking stick identified to Ohio-born Civil War General Quincy A. Gillmore.
