Dave's canes are a true delight to see.

And we know of someone else who also has lots and lots and lots :!: :D

I only have two small plastic containers of canes covering a small selection Paul Ysart and Peter Holmes, plus a tiny packet of a few Strathearn (which came from Dave).

I need more  :cry:

For all you cane lovers - some more pictures for you to see.
Note the Whitefriars canes and the two sheep. Geoffrey Baxter wanted to make Whilst Shepherds Watched as the 1980 Xmas weight adn they had mmade kings so shepherds were no problem but sheep were another matter. They made one sheep cane which looked like a poodle so they made a second with a white sheep on a black background and this was rejected so they made a third with a green background but Baxter didn't like this either but time had run out so they just made a pattern plate and did a millifiore bell for Xmas 1980
