Outstanding hand carved folk art cane with a hunting dog handle. This cane is carved from a single branch or piece of wood. The carving of the dog is very well done, with fine details that include a long pointed tail, big ears, facial features and finely carved legs. The entire cane is painted in a redish-brown paint with black spatters or speckles. The dog measures 11" from the nose to the tip of the tail. And the overall height of the cane post is 35". The carved dog handle is slightly angled for a more comfortable grip. I believe this cane to be from the 1930s. A super cane and great piece of folk art!
