White, blue, and red glass; in the stick one white line, twisted glass around the stick

Valuable Murano glass walking stick. Turn of the 20th century.
Length: 100 cm.
It is in good condition.

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.

Shipped by Bpost with track and trace.
