A person wanted a shaft put onto two pieces of a walking stick/cane and sent me pictures. The cane was used by her GGGrandfather in England before he came to the US. I've never seen anything like it and wonder if someone has any comments?

The top piece she thinks is pewter and is filled with something. The bottom part she also things is pewter and I have no idea how to attach a shaft to it. Any ideas?

I'm hoping someone across the pond might know something about this style of cane.

I'd appreciate any help that can be offered.

Thanks.

I'm not sure what the fill material is in the "head," and not sure how to attach it to the foot for stability. In fact, I'm not sure the bottom part shown is part of the cane...but she says it is.

Yeah, epoxy might work, but with all the stresses on the "foot" makes me wonder how it was attached originally.

Fun piece if I can get enough information to do it. :)

Thanks.

Yeah, she said "cement or something," and I was hoping it is something else that was constructed with the topper. I never heard of putting cement in one before. It is a mystery. :)

SInce the wood part of the cane is missing I'm guess someone seperated the topper and foot for some reason and tossed the cane shaft. Doesn't make sense to me though. However if they did do that, maybe they filled the topper with cement to be used as a paper weight or something?
