A Japanese Bamboo Cane w/Multiple Figures–Meiji–Page 2
This remarkable bamboo crane has the entire length of the cane carved with a large variety of figures. The top is a whorl that shows fine patina – this, and the rest of the cane’s patina – have led us to date the cane to the late Meiji period, circa 1880s-1910. The carvings include – Monkeys in a tree – A Geisha Girl – Deer – Flying Cranes – an Eagle – and a pomegranate. Each of these designs is carved in very fine detail.

The bottom tip of the cane has a metal tip – it appears to be loose – but is actually quite solidly in place. The cane measures 35 ˝” long – the rounded top is 1 ˝” – and the tapered tip at the bottom. We are showing the cane in two sections so that you can see all of the carved figures in fine detail.
