Carved Oak Alphabet Stick.

(Germany): 1835. A dark-stained oak stick, carved with a Roman-letter alphabet in relief on one side. Two opposite sides are decorated with floral and foliate designs, and the side opposite the alphabet is carved with the name "Maria Magdalena Buder" and the year 1835. The body has a square, tapering shape, and it appears that this was a teacher's pointer, used as an educational tool. The carving has a naïve, folk-art quality, and the item was perhaps given as a gift from students to their instructor. Measures 6 3/4 inches in length (68.5 cm), in very fine condition. Item #25416

Price: $1,250.00
