EARLY GETTYSBURG SOUVENIR WOOD CANE FROM ROUNDTOP

$295.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1054-336

Here is an early souvenir walking cane made of wood taken from the famous Gettysburg battlefield area of the Round Tops. This wooden cane measures about 36 ½” long. The handle area retains a covering of the original bark. The entire surface length of the cane appears to been sanded smooth. It was then decorated with multiple wavy designs effected by lightly burning the surface. Below the handle on one side, “GETTYSBURG JULY 1-2-3, 1863 WOOD FROM ROUND TOP,” is stamped on the cane.

Cane is in very good condition and sturdy. It shows a few light surface scratches.

There is a photo of young local Gettysburg boys at Devil’s Den in 1900 displaying canes to sell as souvenirs. They are- Emory Daugherty, Arthur Shields, William Shields, Clarence Shields, and Thomas Rosensteel. In the photo is the burner that was used for burning the design into the woodburned canes. Photo is included in the book, “Adams County Area Pictorial History”.  [sl]
