I was asked by a collector to take some pics of this stick and I thought we don't we all post a picture of one of our favorite sticks!....Doug

I've always been partial to the Dean Candlesticks.  This Cosmo looks like something from the future, not one that's over a 100 years old.

It has to be this Kellogg ‘1901’ stick which joined my collection in October 2020.

There are so many things I like about this one; nicely designed with a good weight so feels nice in the hand, transmitter date says Patent Applied For which makes it a nice early model, an early Steerhorn switch hook...

...and more.  :)

Howard...the Holy Grail of Candlesticks. It is a beauty.

What is the story behind Mr. Strowger?.....Doug
