The audience came to see a cane with an ivory handle and a shaft of timber from Independence Hall in Philadelphia sell to a collector on the phone for $10,640. The cane can be expected to go to a museum eventually. A pretty circa 1685 English ivory pique cane attracted bidders and sold for $11,200 to a local collector.
A full report on the sale will appear in a future issue.
