|Professional walking sticks were designed for professionals such as doctors (Doctor Canes) who wanted to carry a small assortment of medical supplies or tools. This particular cane has a filter on the end that screws off and scents can be added to the small sponge in the chamber. This stick was used for smelling in the sick ward in hospitals. Also, aromatic powders could be inhaled as a method of preventing contagion while treating patients at hospitals as well. This is an amazing stick and a piece of medical history. This stick measures 30 1/4" x 1 1/2" x 1 1/2". The handle measures 1" x 1 1/2" x 1 1/2". The ferrule measures 1 1/2". Exotic wood shaft.|
