166. Presentation Horse Measuring Cane with ' C. P. Shipley, Kansas City, Mo.' cartouche stamped on the alligator leather. Cane is 38" tall folded up. When extended out to measure a horse at 17 Hands it is about 70" tall. The ruler portion is made of solid brass is calibrated to 1/4 hand increments. The cane is covered with alligator hide dyed black in color and is in excellent condition. There is a very attractive bamboo root bulb knob at the end of the handle. Silver presentation plaque has turned a dark patina and reads: " Given to W. E. Atkinson by E. A. Lund Sept. 5 1946". This is by far the fanciest horse measuring cane I have ever seen!
