PYROGRAPHY CANE MADE FROM WOOD ON LITTLE ROUND TOP, WITH CORPS BADGES

$350.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 635-499

Visits to Gettysburg began as early as the days directly following the battle and became increasingly popular in the proceeding years, as did the collection of souvenirs from the battlefield. This is an example of one of those early souvenirs; a pyrography cane made from wood on Little Round Top.  The pyrographic etchings on the top portion of this cane are representations of various corps that served during the battle of Gettysburg.  Corps badges that are illustrated are the 1st Corps, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 11th and 12th.  All depictions are crisp and clearly distinguishable.  They are fashioned on the cane in a way that they encircle a stamp that reads “GETTYSBURG/ JULY 1-2-3, 1863/ WOOD FROM/ ROUND TOP.”

The cane measures 36 ½” long and is in great condition.  There is a burnt (pyrograhic) intricate alternating pattern on the length of the cane.  There isn’t a distinctive handle, but the top 8 ½” of the cane is made of knobby wood that could be used in place of a crook.  An external ferrule is absent, but the bottom has a conical shape to serve the same purpose.  [MC] [ph:L]
