Royal Flying Corps Trench Art Walking Stick

a really superb WWI example in untouched original condition. The tapering shaft is made of polished ash and riveted to the top is an aluminium knob with a turned top, possibly from a cockpit control and below it a red composite spacer which has also been riveted to the shaft. The original owners initials are then carved in the top of the shaft I.H. and below a propeller motif which is inlaid into the stick, which also appears to be cut from aircraft alloy and below this R.F.C. The opposite end of the stick is fitted with a rubber tip which is attached to what we believe to be a horn ferrule. When purchased the previous owner, who bought from the family, had been told the stick was made entirely from WWI period aircraft parts and we can only concur with this analysis. Sadly the exact provenance and name of the original owner has now been lost down the years, but luckily his stick remains in remarkable condition and represents a fine example of period trench art. Measures 35" (88 cm)
