Duke of Wellington Resin Handled Collector's Cane
This standard length Collectors walking stick has a Shepherds Crook style handle made from moulded corinium resin, sporting a Thistle nose. This has been produced from a set of hand crafted designs by well known artists and finished in exquisitely fine detail. It has a turned dark brown beech hardwood shaft and a brass collar at the neck.
The thistle has been a national emblem of Scotland since the reign of King Alexander III (1249-1286). Legend has it that the humble thistle played an instrumental role in deciding the fate of the Battle of Largs (1263). During this conflict between Scotland and Norway, a Norse landing party attempted to take a group of Scottish warrirors by surprise in the middle of the night. They removed their footwear so that they would not be heard, but the ground was covered in thistles. As they advanced, one of the Norsemen stood on the thistle and yelled in pain, alerting the Scots to their attempted ambush. The rest is history and the thistle has been an omen of good fortune in Scotland ever since. This beautiful thistle crook stick is therefore the perfect choice for people of Scottish ancestry, or those with an an interest in Scotland and its history.
