Interesting "Bacchus"? on ebay
« on: June 13, 2008, 12:11:39 PM »
I don't usually post live auctions here but this one caught my eye - 130230533131 
Appears to have some very interesting canes, what looks like three different Queen Victoria silhouette canes, 
and, for lack of a better word, a "bunny ears" cane ( red & white )

Here is a Quick link to the 'Bacchus'.

An interesting weight, but in my opinion not a Bacchus (as we know them Jim....). The cane basket is untidy, the setup rather small, the white Queen's Head cane with the arched base and square bun is not the classic Bacchus silhouette....

My guess is that it was made from various makers canes, and probably later rather than earlier (maybe post 1860?).  I'd happily own it, but not for that sort of price!

Oops wrong link there  ;) but that is an interesting weight too. Any idea what that is, apart from French or Belgian?

Hi Frank

Finger trouble - here is the proper Bacchus link !.

Not sure what the weight is that I linked to by error - one I was watching, most likely Belgian, but the inscription puzzled me.

Liberato Z appears to be a town in the Philipines, other than that I have found nothing (also on my watch list : )
