This antique carnival walking "bang stick" dates from around the late 1800's to early 1900's. The top of the cane is a cast-iron duck head painted green and yellow. This cane was designed and used to set off paper caps for a surprising bang! The shaft of the cane is wood.
I am not quite sure how this works but I found it interesting and picked it up in a local shop today.
