It belonged to my late great-grandfather. It's made of wood. There is a metal ball in the animal's mouth. That is all.

Hello Avy and welcome to the forum. The cane appears to be home made. Was our Great Granddad a craftsmen? It is difficult to identify the wood in that picture. It appears the handle is 3/4 inch stock with what could be a 3/4 dowel stock as the shaft. But having his cane is a great keepsake!

Hi Avy. It looks like the handle and staf are a high gread plywood, possibly a marine ply. The basic shape of the handle is called a "derby handle" with what appears a sharks head nose and brass callor. I would say it is a homemade cane. Possibly made by your Great Granddad or anther craftsman.

Thanks for info, it has been very helpful in my quest to identify this object. Thank you again!
