70. Silver Day Cane-Ca. 1900-Silver handle fashioned in the shape of a rounded putter, fruitwood shaft and a brass ferrule. The well-proportioned handle bears two Austro Hungarian hallmarks authenticating its Viennese origin and from the golden Imperial days. Used but still in great condition, this cane is a surviving relic of the early golfing days and known under the name Sunday Cane. The name comes from the fact, that golfers in England could not play golf on Sundays during the strongly regulated period of the Blue Laws and would carry a cane whose handle was a golf head and surreptitiously practice their shots.-H. 2 ¾” x 2 ¼”, O.L. 33 ½”-$200-$300
