19th Century Rooster Head Cane

About

Folk Art monoxyle cane, made of carved and painted wood figuring a really expressive rooster head with glass eyes. The precisely engraved feathers on its neck and the texture of its crest contribute to make it appear even more realistic. Just below its head, on the stick, is engraved Brigg London. Thomas Brigg and Son’s was established in 1836 at No. 23 St. James’s Street. The company specialised in the manufacture of the finest umbrellas, walking sticks and hunting crops. They used to have a shop in Paris, before the second world war.
