18th-19th century. Displaying the precise craftsmanship typical for the culture. 11 ¾” length, made of a single piece of wood, lathe-turned, and radially sawed to a cylinder within an octagon. One facet extended to form a belt hook. Carved hound’s tooth bands above and below and alternate facets beautifully and precisely chiseled in stylized floral motifs. Small chip to the lip, and a few minor blemishes. Beautifully made.
