L-shaped ivory handle with carved boar hunting scene

A magnificent German cane with an uncommonly large ivory handle & its belt-shaped collar on a real Malacca shaft with bone collar. 9-1/2” high and 4-1/2” wide L-shaped handle with a slightly curving hand rest is engraved in greater part and powerful micro detail with a boar hunting scene showing noblemen with riders blowing the horns and numerous assistants with packs of dogs chasing two boars in the forest. Very detailed. First half of the 19th century with single family Bavarian connection for 4 generations. Personalized with engraving “Dr. K” and doubtless unique. All original. Overall length 33-3/4”.
