    Really cool. Looks like some of the best from Appalachian art. What are tobacco sticks, made from the tobacco plant?

  • the sticks were hewn from hardwood trees and were used to spear the plants and hang them to cure in barns - several plants on each stick, hung from the rafters in the barns. The sticks were used for the fence and the X's on the planter boxes.
