Cane collector Lou Grumet acquired a number of antique canes related to iconic American leaders, and then broadened his collection by commissioning Baltimore carver Pat Harris to create figural canes of additional American icons. This cane is a faux marble depiction of Thomas Jefferson, designed to suggest Jean-Antoine Houdon's masterful bust sculpture of Jefferson.
