This fine prestige staff is surmounted by a carved animal head. The head of the animal would have rested on the owner’s shoulders when the staff was carried.
The staff has been shaped into a slightly arched form, and exhibits a dark, glossy patina where it has been handled.
The staff really captures the presence of the animal, with its tilted head, twisted ears and white metal eyes.
Estimated Period: Mid-20th Century (Or Before)
