Hi Alexander

I agree about the pink/blue/yellow cane - looks identical.  The other cane, though of the same basic design, is not quite the same, as the central cog cane has thinner walls in the eBay weight than the examples in John Hawley's book. But I would agree the canes came from the same maker.  I guess it is the French influence of Nicolas Lutz I see!
