Really rare Victorian bamboo wood and silver plated gadget walking stick or cane. Made to look exactly like a normal walking stick but the handle is hinged to one end to hide a vesta cane match box inside the handle. The spring on the hinge works well and closes with a good click. Very rare to find example, by their nature not many exist as the mechanisms broke when used all the time. The ferrule is original and made of brass and steel. Please contact us with any questions you may have.
It measures 91 cm 35 3/4 inches in length, the handle is 9.5 cm 3 3/4 inches wide.
