Walking stick with a knob shaped as the head of a Jewish man in a yarmulke

Object | Accession Number: 2001.324.1

Wooden walking stick with a brass knob handle in the shape of the head of a Jewish man. European artisans commonly adorned everyday items such as ceramics, toys, and even walking sticks, with caricatures of Jewish faces. These walking sticks are examples of racial antisemitism becoming part of everyday life.
