A carved elephant’s head with an elongated trunk comprises the handle of this unique and stylish cane set atop a varnished bamboo shaft.

Boasting an intriguing provenance, this cane hails from the private collection of former American ambassador to the Seychelles, pioneer journalist and media executive Dick Carlson. An avid collector of canes since his bid for Mayor of San Diego, California in 1984, Carlson’s collection in his home, office and summer home in Maine is estimated to total some 3,000 canes and walking sticks. Carlson has an affection for canes for their often unique artistry, but also for their innate usefulness — “because they’ve been used by someone for something.”
