An early eighteenth century cane, the turned ivory knob with piqué-work initials and dated 1704; retaining the original shaped and engraved collar on the original but shortened Malacca shaft. English circa 1700. 34.75 inches long.
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.
