The silver knob of this attractive fruitwood lady's cane lifts open to reveal a pleated and painted waxed fabric screen. Vibrantly painted with pink flowers on an orange background, the screen may be used as a fire screen, sunshade, or even a fan. Such pieces were once important accessories for ladies who wished to protect their complexions from the heat of an open fireplace or the rays of the sun. This example also contains a pencil and fountain pen hidden within the fruitwood shaft, making it as practical as it is fashionable.
