A charming carving of a ragamuffin boy tops this wonderful cane. The handle is carved and painted with delightful detail, from the boy’s facial expression to the texture of his clothing textiles. A smooth, light-hued wooden shaft finishes this cane with a sturdy appeal.

Boasting an intriguing provenance, this cane hails from the private collection of former American ambassador to the Seychelles, journalist and media executive Dick Carlson.
