This is an important artifact, a gorgeous gold topped walking stick presented to the reigning Heavyweight Champion by a local Boston secret society. The unique 38-inch ebony cane features an outstanding cast and carved, elegantly engraved gold handle that reads: “JL Sullivan By His Irish Friends of the Pueblos 1883” This item by descent within the family that owned a Dorchester bar that Sullivan frequented. The bar owner partnered/financed some of Sullivan’s ventures, not all were successful; he received this artifact as payment for a failed business arrangement. The cane remained in this family for 112-years according to the signed and notarized statement of provenance. This cane and other Sullivan artifacts were consigned to us nearly 20-years ago. We are pleased to again be afforded an opportunity to present Sullivan’s personal cane for sale. (Overall: 37.5”)

With Bust of Stonewall Jackson
New Orleans
Circa 1869, entire view 1

This silver presentation cup, with applied handle, features a bas relief profile of General Stonewall Jackson on front and is engraved on rim "W. H. Renaud Sep. 4th, 1869." The cup is marked on bottom "E. A. TYLER / NEW ORLEANS," dimples, overall very good. William H. Renaud was a member of the Company C [Ellison's] Confederate Guards Regiment who also served in Fender's Battery during the Civil War. In 1861 he is listed in the NOLA City Directory as an accountant. He eventually became a successful businessman.
E. A. Tyler was a jeweler and watchmaker on Canal Street who also advertised "silver and plated ware" but apparently was a retailer and not a silversmith.
