Set of Three Quality Kooboo Rattan School Canes

Choose From 'Nursery' (1/4"), 'Junior' (3/8") and 'Senior' (7/16")

These are identical to my individual Nursery, Junior and Senior canes - but with a significant price reduction for ordering three at once.

You can choose any combination of diameters and any combination of lengths up to 32". For variety I recommend a 32" Senior, a 28" Junior and a 24" Nursery, but of course the choice is entirely yours.

My canes are very flexible, durable and of high-quality.

Considerably more canes have been sold than my feedback reflects because many buyers wish to remain anonymous and so do not wish to give or receive feedback.

Naturally, these wishes are complied with and to avoid any possible misunderstanding in this respect, 'buyer' feedback is not left unless the 'buyer' first leaves 'seller' feedback.

In addition, email/name/address details are NEVER disclosed to ANY third party.

Hand-made by myself from carefully selected imported Kooboo Loontie rattan (the finest available), each cane is a replica of canes used in schools up to the 1980s, and, amongst other things, is ideal for fancy dress, theatricals, or as a novelty lounge-wall decoration.

Details of how I make the canes from coils of imported rattan can be found here.

Please note that I always have a stock of canes so despatch will be within 3 business days of payment - if not sooner.

For authenticity, the canes are unvarnished, but, naturally, you could varnish them yourself if desired.

The canes are supplied with a free booklet entitled 'Cane Care & Interesting Facts'.

The canes have the following specifications:

  • Diameters: Any three of 1/4" approx (Nursery), 3/8" approx (Junior) and 7/16" approx (Senior)
  • Lengths: You can choose any lengths up to 32" overall as I can shorten them (if requested).

    Please tell me the lengths you want when you pay - to ensure the fastest possible delivery.

  • Flexibility: Nursery is very swishy. Junior is firm but swishy. Senior is firm but somewhat swishy

Find out how the length, diameter and flexiblity affected the cane's use.

Rattan is a natural plant, so no individual cane is exactly like another. In particular, some dry even straighter than others - and some have what look like dirt-marks but are in fact markings on the rattan itself.

Nearly 50% of the rattan I receive is discarded because of meaningful blemishes - only the best parts are used.

The package can be despatched to any address - not just to the buyer's address.

The cost of postage/packing includes cardboard, parcel tape and time - the value of the stamp(s) that you see on the package isn't the full story!

For UK buyers, payment can be made by Personal Cheque, Postal Order, Bankers Draft, or Paypal. If payment is made by personal cheque, the item will be despatched as soon as the cheque has cleared.

For overseas buyers, payment needs to be by Paypal.

Positive feedback will be left for buyers who desire it when I receive confirmation via the feedback method that the item has been received. So, if you don't want feedback - don't leave ME any and then I won't leave YOU any.
