Walking Sticks – A Symbol of Status

The walking stick has been around for centuries and has always been a popular accessory to use in many cultures. In fact, it is one of the most recognizable symbols of an individual’s class, age, and status. The use of walking sticks is still prevalent today in many countries around the world, and this article will discuss some of the most common uses and styles of these devices.

A walking stick can be used as a support when walking long distances, especially if the person is elderly or suffers from a physical disability. It can also be used as a prop when sitting down, especially when the individual has difficulty standing up due to an injury or illness. There are many different styles and types of walking sticks that are available to purchase, so it is important to take into consideration what the individual needs before making a decision on which type to purchase.

There are two main types of walking sticks – the cane and the crutch. The cane is a short, straight stick with a flat end that is often used by individuals who have arthritis or other joint problems. This type of walking stick is usually made of wood or metal and is usually worn over the shoulder. The crutch is a longer, curved device that is typically worn by people who are recovering from injuries or illnesses. This device is usually held under the arm and is used to help walk or stand.

Many different styles of walking sticks are available today. These include the traditional wooden walking sticks, which are made of either cedar or ash wood, as well as the more modern metal and plastic devices. Each of these styles of walking sticks has its own unique characteristics that make it more suitable for certain individuals. 

The Van Gearys started as casual collectors and appreciators of artistic intricacy for their collections. They would search far and wide, scouring the world, looking through different shops, thrift stores, yard sales, and storage auctions to find oddities of the most exemplary order. After going through years of collecting and maintaining a plethora of different artworks, they decided to dabble in selling antiquities and enabling their Art’s access to the world. Using their experiential and theoretical knowledge to the test, they decided to delve deeper by opening their own auction gallery.

Van Geary Auction Gallery, founded in 2018, is a significant proprietor of high-end Art pieces and historical collections. We pride ourselves on our vast acquirement of unique and eclectic items from different eras, all in crisp condition.
