Time Companion

Over the centuries the utilitarian walking stick transformed into an elegant accessory essential to a gentleman’s de-rigueur fashion-statement. Its design, shape, and material conveyed one’s taste and status. Some sticks hid a long, thin rapier inside, convenient for defense and dueling. Others held flasks, or compasses. This most, no doubt, had a wind up watch set in the knob. Our recreation of this Victorian walking stick is both a decorative prop and practical timekeeper.
