In good condition - not broken (rare)
When men were selected to become soldiers during the turn of the 20th century, by way of evidence the families of the 'lotelingen' were given a glass walking stick.
During the loteling’s military service this was hung in a visible place, for example above a fireplace or in other visible place in the house.
This served as a notification for the visitors that in this house a man was fighting at the front or was drafted for his military service by a selection.
This indicated that you had to respectfully and tactfully talk about the loteling.
Upon the soldier’s return, the glass stick was ritually broken.
If the stick remained in one piece this meant that the soldier had died at the front.
However, because this stick was so unique, it was often not broken; only small pieces were broken off at the bottom of the stick.
The stick is not broken as you often see with these kinds of sticks, it is cut off straight, which suggests to me that soldier did not come home. You don't often see this, 90% of these sticks are broken off.
Length: 98 cm
Will be carefully packaged and sent by registered mail.

Everything perfect. Good packing. Fast delivery.
thank you received promptly
Bowl arrived well/beautiful. Unfortunately inside is Petrol. Txt said Blue. Silver on the outside wasn't polished. Not nice to receive it this way. If I had known this, I wouldn't have bought it.
Thanks received the beautiful set. The box has a key hole. Was there a key?
Everything went well.
The items were in very good condition.
Package delivered. Nice objects. T&T code had changed, could not follow the parcel. I have my doubts about the origin of the objects, the engraving is rather made in India than made in Belgium.
