Statue of Liberty.
The Statue of Liberty, a gift from France located in New York Harbor, is one of the most striking symbols of New York City. Baltimore carver Pat Harris was asked to design a cane which displayed the iconic figure of the Statue for the Grumet cane collection. The cane head and shaft reflected the greenish patina of the Statue.
Gift of Lou and Barbara Grumet
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
