Walking stick


RCIN 35955

Partridge wood walking stick with an ivory knob handle carved with four hounds attacking a fox around the side; with an engine turned gold collar with gold loop threaded with a black silk tasseled cord.

Prince Albert's walking sticks incorporate a wide range of materials, styles and nationalities, many of which reflect his other artistic interests as well as his travels. This stick, mounted in ivory with a scene of hounds pursuing a fox, is typical of the detailed ivory carving produced in Germany and Austria in the nineteenth century.

Inscribed: Coburg Octr 1860
