Inscribed walking Stick of Col. Joseph A. Gerk – St. LOUIS, MISSOURI POLICE CHIEF 1925 /1934

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Fashioned from a stout tree branch, steamed and bent to form a classic cane grip, the significances of the natural shaft has unfortunately been lost in time baring some additional research. Fortunate for the collector / historian though is a silver band classically engraved Col. Jos. A. Gerk St. Louis. Born in 1876 of German immigrants, the native Missourian recorded No in response to the 1930 US Census inquiry, Attended School? yet he owned a Radio Set and could record his occupation as Chief of Police St Louis, Missouri. Our research found that Gerk worked his way up through the ranks to serve as Chief of Police from April 9, 1925 to October 1, 1934. An outstanding piece of Americana from The Gateway To The West in a time when the Chief of Police would have had some stories to tell. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
