IVORY EROTIC SWORD CANE c. 1800s-1900 SOLINGEN STEEL BLADE
This superb Victorian ivory erotic sword cane has a beautifully carved, anatomically correct, lazily reclining nude as its handle, which measures 5-1/2 inches long by 1-3/8 inches deep and 1-1/2 inches high. The seductive lady languishes above a silver tone collar, a dense malacca shaft (one inch thick) and an ivory tip. The 23-1/2-inch long blade is fashioned from Solingen steel, from the German "City of Blades," where sword smiths have made their home since medieval times. The oval logo of the manufacturer E & F Horster is stamped on the blade. In great condition, this intriguing weapon stick is one for the discerning collector.
