No - I did not get extra images - but I think that poor images make canes look more blurred and fatter, rather than thinner. As for your commenting whilst the listing is active, I believe that items usually find their own level whatever...so no problem.
I just think the cane design and the overall look and shape suggest St MandÃ©. That is an awfully subjective comment, I know - and I am uncomfortable with that approach to ID - but there is always an element to ID that is very hard to quantify: you look at a paperweight, and have a feel for what it might be. I am not 100% convinced it is St M, but that is my feeling.
