Pricket Stick

South German, 16th c.

Brass, iron. An impressive stick. Crisp turnings on stem, turnings on base and cup echo each other. Iron spike and bed riveted to brass cup with copper rivets. The iron brings a visual interest that is lacking in the more usual all-brass sticks. Good condition with a dent or two. No restoration.

17-1/2" h, 6-1/4" diam at base.
