    The latest novelty cane that I made for fun and sold to a disabled person who collects canes. The bowl on the Oriental style pipe unscrews from the stem and fits inside the knob, and the stem, of course, fits in a hole down the shaft of the cane. Tight and padded so it doesn't rattle.P1010002-1.jpg

    Château de Ruthie is located in Aquitaine, in the Pyrenees.Map coordinates 43.149717, 0.934134You have to love the name, although I'm sure it means something quite different in Langue d'oc.
