Exceptionally rare materials distinguish this exquisite walking stick, crafted of tortoiseshell. Counted among the most luxurious of antique canes, tortoiseshell walking sticks are remarkably rare due to their frailty and difficulty to make. Fashioned from the shell of the carette turtle, the art of manipulating tortoiseshell has been almost completely lost, and very few examples of this art form survive today. A stunning engraved handle fashioned of yellow gold completes this remarkable work of art.
