Descrizione
Bastone da passeggio Loteling, - Murano - Bicchiere pieno - Inizio XX secolo
Italia

Rare walking stick of glass as was used in families of soldiers called for duty in WW 1.

A length of 85.5 cm.
Weight about 400 grams

When men were selected by draw to become soldiers during WWI, by way of evidence the families of the 'lotelingen' were given a glass walking stick.
It was hung in a visible place during the military service of the drawn soldier, such as over a fireplace.
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.

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.

At the tip a rubber cap, can be removed, not original.
