On February 10th. 1844 Joseph Dias, boatsteerer and keeper of the log of the whaler "Clifford Wayne" complained,"Nothing to do but make Canes to support our dignity with we (are) home".
These canes were made by sailors at sea by using materials they had, like; whalebone, whale- or narwhale ivory, baleen, coconut, tropical hardwood, silver coins,and shark vertebrae.
The whalebone shaft carving imitates the rope and the handle is made of a whale teeth and has the form of the kapstand.
