Important provenance. Elegant craftsmanship. Fashionable accessories. This rare collection of French walking sticks once belonged to the famed Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord, the Prince de Bénévent and the Château de Valençay. One of the most influential and well-known statesman and diplomats in French history, Talleyrand was renowned for both his political acumen and sense of fashion. Exceptional in both craftsmanship and timeless style, this collection of nine decorative canes speak to his impeccable taste. All having been owned by Talleyrand and descended through his family, they boast remarkable provenance, and are accompanied by a letter of authenticity. 33 1/2” to 35 1/2” length. #30-4012
