I recently acquired an antique ivory cane, however the head has detached from the stick. The head is basically a rounded knob and the stick is hollow inside but filled with a transparent yellow resin substance which I assume holds all the ivory together. I want to reattach the head and possibly add in a secret flask to the hollow area using the head as a cap. First though I need to find someone who knows about canes or ivory objects, I wasn’t quite sure whether the average antiques dealer would know too much about canes specifically.
