Poles - Possibly Sowerbutts

InTheNetUK Photo InTheNetUK Photo

Cane Roach Pole, Possibly Sowerbutt !!! Estimated that the pole stems from around 1920's or 30's and possibly made by a company called Sowerbutts. The pole has a number of increments marked on the butt that are 1" apart up to 12". The tip of the pole has a braid loop and it also has a metal eyelet about 12" down from there. The total length of the pole is about 19 1/2 foot when put together. When disassembled, the top two sections fit inside each other as do the bottom two sections. There is a cork bung for the top two sections, but not for the bottom ones, I don't think there would have been one either. The pole is in Good - Excellent condition, although a couple of whippings need looking at.
