This finely crafted wooden cane is much more than what meets the eye. The staff unfolds revealing three legs of a standing tripod, while the knob handle unscrews to become the base for propping up a camera. This intriguing and discreet cane was once used by military personnel. 

Boasting an intriguing provenance, this cane hails from the private collection of former American ambassador to the Seychelles, journalist and media executive Dick Carlson. An avid collector of canes since his bid for Mayor of San Diego, California in 1984, Carlson’s collection in his home, office and summer home in Maine is estimated to total some 3,000 canes. Carlson has an affection for canes for their often unique artistry, but also for their innate usefulness — “because they’ve been used by someone for something.”
