Micromosaic Top Writer's Cane
- Item No.
There is more than meets the eye with this intriguing writer's walking stick. The copper knob handle, with its charming micro-mosaic, reveals an inkwell beneath its lid. Within its shaft, the cane contains all that the traveling writer requires to pen a spontaneous verse, including a roll of loose sheets of paper, a fountain pen, pen knife, eraser and graphite pencil, all with carved ivory handles. Also included is a stick of sealing wax, a metal-sheathed candle and a container of matches, perfect for sealing one's private correspondence. System canes, those that perform a job or help their owners to perform theirs, are among the most fascinating of all antique walking sticks. To find one is such flawless and complete condition is exceptional.
