Perhaps if this is antique or something of a newer date etc... What kind of style does this stick belongs to ? Thank you in advance !

    some kind of feline animal...?

    or some dark hardwood???....

    Check out this Welsh fellow's walking sticks (see the "gallery")- there are some similar features on some of his, such as the use of horn and glass eyes. Yours might be what is termed a "thumb stick", with a place to rest your thumb between the cat's ears.


    He might be able to give you an idea of age and origin.

    Ty for your reply ! I have actually ordered this cane & waiting to arrive. I guess it's made from some dark hardwood... For some reason it reminds me at some african sticks .. Yes it is a black feline in some odd kind of shape :)

    I believe it is somewhere about 90 cm long or so.
