Mr. Barth was an avid collector and scholar in the field of canes. After retiring from the movie producing world he devoted much of his time to collecting and researching the history of canes. His collection varies in styles, age, and composition which is an advantage to the collector wishing to purchase today. The collection consist of many fine ivory handles, nautical, gadget, guns and swords, silver and gold, porcelain and much more. This will be an absolute auction with no reserves and all canes will be sold to the highest bidder. We will also sell a group of canes after we finish the catalogue sale for attending bidders.
