TAKE ME BACK Tuesday - vintage walking sticks - hood ornaments, vintage door knockers.....and vintage walking sticks all have similar attributes to them in my opinion. It's the different materials used, animals, whimsical figures and the variety of colors used in the of the design. Little pieces of art! So fun to look at! "In the late 17th Century oak sticks were carried, especially by the Puritans. The fashion (for men) continued into the 18th Century. From time to time, women also carried walking sticks or canes as a fashion accessory. ... Collectors of canes look for the old, the new and the novel."
