I dont think its very old the proportion of the figure isnt quite right theres not much natural wear on the handle not much detail on the hands and feet any good casting would have well proptioned hands and feet its always a sign of quality.
The carton characture would put any serious collector of and suspect its just a novelty item made in the third world.
As for the whole look of the item some will consider it disgusting but from a art point of view its not very good. sorry

Thank you. I appreciate your professional rating. I'm not an expert, actually it's the first time that I try to sell an walking stick handle but anyway I was almost sure that it was not a treasure, neither that it was antique. For my taste this object is quite kitsch so I agree with you...anyway I set the starting price at 0,99£ just to leave to the buyers the faculty to give a right value. Perhaps it's right a kitsch (luckily rare!) subject that increases its value despite the poor quality of casting.

I am no expert ,but it is in pretty bad taste but no doubt you will find someone who has interest in this, but doubt if you find it here.
