This stick is probably 1960's to 70's -- it is 45 inches tall and has character faces incribed at most branch attachments and irregularities -- it looks like a scrimshaw type technique where the face has been scratched in and darkened -- the various faces are charmingly inocently rendered, but I think too well done to be a child's work --- the tip and top both have the classic SMILEY FACE of the 60's -- please check the photos
