Antique Three Wise Monkeys Hear/See/Speak No Evil H/m Silver 1923 Walking Stick
This lovely walking stick would make a great addition to any silver or walking stick collection, as well as a good walking stick/cane for out and about.
The shaft has been carved with the three wise monkeys, see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil.
This saying originated in Japan in the 17th century and Its original message was simple and profound: “do not listen to what will lead you to do wrong”, “do not see bad behaviour as natural” and “do not speak badly without reason”
The stick also has a hallmarked silver pommel top with detailing.
