An early and gorgeous Narwhal Captain’s Cane. circa 1800

The whalebone-handle is a plain cylinder topped with an edge, it measures 3,5 cm high x 3,5 cm diameter, it is on top of the most precious material on Canes. There is a silver collar and an old bimetal ferrule. The OL is 91 cm. and the condition is perfect! This piece is gorgeous, is also covered with an extraordinary warm and cream-yellow patina which make it comparable with the legendary Nautical-Narwhal models, for this reason and for the simplicity of its shape we induce, it may be an 18th-century exemplar.  With the use of whalebone for the handle and the splendid marine-ivory of the shaft it shows clear ties to the nautical world, making it to belong to the category of Captain’s Canes. For many years this piece was the favorite staff in an important French collection, this scarce and desirable high-class piece has survived in excellent condition for 200 years. 

We deliver this piece with a signed document issued by a certified appraiser, corroborating the ivory is older than 100 years and therefore before 1947.

The Narwhal tusk has a long history of importance as a beautiful, natural artifact, the only long spiraled piece in all creation! It comes from one tooth in the narwhal’s mouth that elongate as male mature, sometimes around 3 meters. There have been recent discoveries concerning its true purposes, as a sensory device with a maze of nerve endings that send information to the animal about its environment, perhaps to help find food or to determine where the ice may be clear and safe for the herd. Fascinating information can be found at: www.narwhal.org
