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

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.

mounts for over 25 years and makes a very nice stand for these pieces. They can
also fabricate wall mounts as well.
