This is a tall cane with a carved horse’s head made from figured Carpathian Elm salvaged from the grounds of the University of Pennsylvania. The tree was cut and destined for firewood or mulch and the person I purchased it from salvaged some 5-6 sections of trunk. It was most fortunate, as the wood has a figure that creates a checkered pattern. It’s hard to see this in my work because of the small section of wood used, but the grain is quite rich and beautiful. The mane of the horse is also distinguished by using the sapwood that is a lighter color. The handle is ergonomic and made from a solid piece. The collar is Cocobolo and Paudauk and the shaft solid Black Walnut. The cane is approximately 40” tall and can be cut to suit.
Comments and inquiries welcome.
