    Description

    Circa 1920's Sam Langford Hand Carved Folk Art Cane. This beautiful hand carved folk art cane was probably made in either the United Kingdom or the USA in the 1920's, just after Sam Langford's boxing career was ending. Langford is considered one of the greatest boxers of all time but whom most people do not know about. This is largely due to heavyweight champions being unwilling to meet Langford in the ring, including Jack Johnson.

    The cane features a portrait carving of Langford on the top, dovetailed in to the remainder of the cane which is filled with portraits and names of Langford's opponents carved into the stick. A metal tip has been affixed to the bottom to prevent wear to the wood. Measures 37" long.
