Functional and elegant, our dolphin-handled hardwood walking stick is a truly collectible fashion accessory. The Derby-style walking stick was originally named after British statesman Lord Derby in 1876. Derby would often travel through Europe with a cane that bore a curved design at one end and a palm rest on the other. Our hand-crafted, collectible, polished hardwood Derby walking cane boasts an ornamental, quality cast metal dolphin handle. The ancient Greeks believed that spotting dolphins swimming in a ship s wake was a good omen. A classic walking cane for anyone who loves the seven seas, it is sure to lend exotic style to any collection. This elegant walking stick has a polished hardwood shaft, which has been expertly lacquered with a clear coat to protect the wood. Fitted with a rubber ferrule tip and smart brass metal collar. These items are collector's walking sticks and are not intended for orthopedic use. 1"Wx5"Dx37"H. 1 lb.
