NMM 8949. Walking-stick harmonica, France, ca. 1890. Many styles of walking sticks with harmonicas in their handles were fashionable at the turn of the 19th- to the 20th-century. The harmonica handle is made of hallmarked, textured "800 silver," with blow-only reeds. The 36-inch-long (914 mm) stick is made of ebonized wood, with a brass ferrule at the lower end. Alan G.
