Just a mention of something I came across while visiting my daughter and SIL. They live in the upper floor of a Victorian era house that has been divided into apartments. A fellow in his late 70's lives on the first floor and maintains that house and one next door. Right at his entry was a large tube shaped holder filled w. sticks (and 1 umbrella.) Most were simple canes, various colors of stain/finish, that showed a lot of wear. There was a fancy modern one that appeared to me to be made of aluminum, and enamelled. It featured a bald eagle head. There was a fine one topped with a brass rabbit head. The best was a carved and colored stick. I didn't want to mess with them without permission, but I would very much like to have inspected the carved one. My daughter told me some of the sticks had belonged to his elder brother, so I wouldn't have been surprised if it was at least 70 years old.

We only were there for a few days, and I didn't happen to meet him, so I told my daughter to compliment him on his gentlemanly collection when next she sees him.

You never really know what your going to come across until your there hey? If you ever get back there hopefully they will let you take a closer look at them and perhaps snap a few pictures you can post. It would be nice to be able to garner some info from the owner and hear their stories.
