A very unusual collection of walking sticks is going up for auction on June 21st.
The most extensive private collection of walking sticks ever seen is looking to set an auction record at Chiswick Auctions.
The collection amassed by a private collector, Roy Moore, consists of more than 400 walking sticks, each individual, each with a very special element; be it an exquisite porcelain design, or one that contains an extending tape measure for measuring a horse, or one that doubles as a working flute, or a glove holder. Ranging from mid-18th century pieces all the way through to the mid-20th century, these stunning walking sticks are works of art in their own right, with only the highest quality porcelain, silver chasing, gold and jade (to name but a few materials) were used to produce these amazing creations. The search for these sticks was extensive and they came from far and wide over the course of two years, therefore we anticipate huge global interest.
