    A little smaller than I expected but doesn't pose a problem. It has a good heavy base that should support all but the heaviest canes. - George S.

    Additional Information

    Collectible canes and walking sticks are available in a wide range from many cultures and time periods.

    The basic purpose of a walking stick or cane is to help a person balance while walking. Walking sticks used by hikers aid in clearing the way as well as breaking downhill or added support for going uphill. They have also been known to be used as a defensive or offensive weapon which may even conceal a blade in the end.

    Around the 17th or 18th century a rigid stick took over from the sword as a part of the European gentlemen’s wardrobe and was used primarily as a walking stick. In addition to its value as a decorative accessory it also continued to fulfil some of the function of the sword as a weapon.

    Many of the old vintage canes and walking sticks are now sought after by collectors.

    Art Display Essentials has developed a stock stand just for canes and walking sticks. The bottom is made of 3/8” steel to give good ballast to a stick that extends far past the arms of the base. These arms can be bent to adjust for the different diameters of different walking sticks, canes or staffs.

    Sometimes a custom size or finish is desired, so a custom mount would be the solution. 10-31 Inc. has been making custom mounts for over 25 years and makes a very nice stand for these pieces. They can also fabricate wall mounts as well.
