    Polk & Dallas: Folk Art Janus Jugate Cane. Some of the most interesting pieces of political Americana are in the folk art category. This 32" hickory cane is a prime example. The knob or handle has carved busts of Polk & Dallas, Janus-style. The shaft below Polk has a carved rooster and the inscription "Polk the Young Hickory". Below Dallas is the inscription "Dallas & Victory". The bottom half of Polk's nose is missing and there appears to be a knot or old repair/inlay on his right cheek. There is a hole at the top of Dallas' head. In spite of the defects, it has a lot going for it and is truly one-of-a-kind!
