37. Rare American- Italian Assassins Folk-Art-C. 1900-A one piece carved high relief folk cane that tells the story of Italian anarchist and assassin Gaetano Bresci .The handle is a bust of King Umberto I of Italy who was assassinated by Bresci in 1900. The initials S.M. (which probably stand for Saverio Merlino Bresci's attorney or Sua Maestà His Majesty ) appear on his back. There are six full figures Adam, Eva, Spieo, Peno Bresci and a devil. There’s also a finely carved snake with brass and beaded eyes. The killer came to America and lived in Patterson, New Jersey for a short time and was a reporter for the anarchist paper La Questione Social. He then returned to Italy and committed the crime and was sentenced to life in prison. He was found dead in his cell in 1901 .The snake has pyrographic decoration, no ferrule, and original patina-OL 37”-$2,500-$2,500
