This extraordinary walking stick offered at M.S. Rau Antiques was once owned by Elvis Presley, one of the most celebrated cultural icons of the 20th century. Topped by a fine brass handle in the form of a tiger with ruby glass eyes, the cane was the perfect accessory for a man known as “Mr. Tiger” among his martial art friends. The tiger was to become an important motif for The King, who had the majestic animal fashioned into jewelry and embroidered on his famous jumpsuits. The rock ‘n roll legend even named hit songs and an album, Tiger Man, after the feline. This stylish cane, truly fit for The King, beautifully incorporates the animal in exceptional detail.
The King of both rock ‘n roll and fashion trendsetting, Elvis is renowned for his outlandish costumes and stylish accessories, and the walking stick was to become one of his most beloved accouterments. The best-selling solo artist in recorded history, Elvis Presley remains among the most celebrated and recognized celebrities in the world. Seldom does the opportunity present itself to acquire such an exceptional piece from one of the most celebrated entertainers in recent history.
M.S. Rau Antiques has been a French Quarter landmark for over 100 years, earning the trust of discerning antiques collectors worldwide. Their 30,000 square foot gallery overflows with remarkable collections of fine art, exquisite jewelry and, of course, exceptional 18th-and 19th-century antiques.
