Antique & Old Folk Walking Canes

Folk canes are one of the largest areas of walking sticks for the collector to explore.

A folk cane is a not mass machine manufactured walking cane.The pure example  being a lone individual whittling away at a piece of wood to create an individual design. One of the best examples of this type of cane being the religious folk cane

 At the other end of the scale being the walking stick manufacturer of past years outsourcing the carving of canes with pre defined design criteria. Likely a silver, white metal collar added to the finished item by the manufacturer, bearing the makers stamp.
