This type of piqué cane is English and from the period around 1700, the technique being brought to England by Huguenots fleeing France after Louis XIV imposed his Edict of Nantes in 1665. The remarkably short span of time in which they were produced, (the earliest so far recorded as 1687; the latest 1717) as well as an evidently common style strongly suggests that they were all made in one workshop.
