The candy cane "Berlingot" mark in the foot was only used between 1918 and 1921. The incised decoration depicts sorrel leaves. As an avid forager I can tell you that this os common sorrel and not bitter wood sorrel that looks like clover. Sorrel is important in the wild food calendar as it is one of the earliest wild herbs to become available, even before wild garlic.
