Description

This early 20th Century steel sword stick is in three parts, the handle of a Lion or Tiger's head with a short sword or dagger, screws into the centre section which in turn screws into the bottom section ending in a sharp tip. The decoration is in the niello style, with the black background contrasting with the silver coloured steel.
The whole is a very sturdy, heavy walking stick, unlike a sheathed sword stick this would take some time to produce the hidden blade. It might be more effective for defence used as a cudgel.
In very good condition, I think it originates from India or Asia.

Length - 38" (96.5cm)
