~ Japanese Cloisonné Egg Topped Sword Stick ~
Here we have a rather interesting sword stick that I would estimate is from the late 19th century.
The sword is a quadraform steel ‘spike’ rather than a traditional sword and it has been housed inside a lacquered length of bamboo with silver mountings.
The most exquisite part of this sword stick is the cap which is in the form of a cloisonné egg covered with a blue background, a floral design and a gold inlaid repeated pattern. The egg is incredible and is possibly a one of a kind piece commissioned in the period when Japanese art and style was all the rage in the US and Europe.
