A gold-filled compartment cane with an ebony shaft is a highlight of the upcoming Antique Cane Collections Auction, presented by Kimball Sterling. Named after a U.S. Marshall, the Bat Masterson compartment cane has a high relief casting and can be used to store money, medicine, or other small objects. The auction also showcases several carved ivory and jade dress canes, among which a sterling silver sea monster cane by Charles Daugherty is notable. To make this hand-carved contemporary cane, Daugherty used the lost-wax technique. Other cane designs offered in this auction include an 1860 percussion gun cane and an 1890 umbrella gun cane with a working mechanism.
Art Nouveau canes were known for their functionality and their use as an accessory. A featured Art Nouveau silver opera dress cane has a curled vine shaft wrapped with ribbon, a silver handle, and a button end cap. Folding suitcase canes and convertible trick seat canes are offered as well. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
