  Garland 2 Piece pic3.JPG - GARLAND TWO PIECE - Length 13 1/4 in; unique blacksmith made fine steel stick, made by C. H. Garland of Silver Plume, CO, ca. 1900, octagonal spike, detachable4 ¾ in hook, fancy thimble and thumb tab, ex-Steve Rush and Leo Stambaugh collections; Leo received it from the Garland family; Garland made folding combination lock stick # 254 in Wilson’s candlestick book; [personal message from Leo Stambaugh 9/13/2007 - The Garland stick was from the family in Denver, they were related to Garland and I bought the 2 piece stick and a ladies leg Garland stick from them.  The 2 sticks were similar with a scalloped edge on the thimbles. I owned one other Garland and saw 5 others over the years. He was a blacksmith in Central City and then Silver Plume, on to Aspen and he died in Wallace, Idaho. The 2 piece stick is the only one I have seen that was meant to be used and it was. It is longer, the timber men liked a longer stick to check for dry rot in the stulls.]
