These two fascinating walking sticks on the left belonged to Sir Arthur Sullivan.

The longer stick held a horse measure neatly concealed  below its finial as shown in the images below left.

The shorter stick had a ‘tiger’s eye’ finial below which was an 18 carat gold band. The image at the top right shows Melvyn Tarran holding this stick during the recording of the ‘Celebrity Antiques Road Trip’ featuring Tom Conti and James Braxton during  their visit to the World of G&S Museum.
