    Description

    Lovely Cane Owned and Used by Franklin Delano Roosevelt Among personally-owned FDR artifacts, few can compete with the appeal of such a cane which evokes the image of the handicapped Roosevelt bravely struggling to take a halting step or two using a cane. This exceptionally elegant cane was presented as a gift from FDR to one of his valets, Cesar Carrera, in 1941. It is accompanied by a detailed letter of provenance from Carrera's widow. The letter includes a precise description of the cane, as well as some interesting recollections of the president. Please see the Heritage Galleries Web site for the full text. This very special cane is 34.5" in length, and has been elegantly mounted and framed for display (9.5" x 40").
