Well thanks for wrecking my happiness at finding a Pendleton scarf today.

Hit up a couple local antique shops today for my birthday.

 

 

Not thrifted, but still good deals I think.

 

Found a pair of boots (pics later) and this walking stick/cane.

 

 

 

Black, Starr and Frost Jewelers

Sterling Silver

 

 

FHB 22 East 65th Street

 

 

Was not difficult to find out that the owner was Frederic Henry Betts, a patents lawyer from New York.

 

Here is the address (in 1940), today it has been converted to office buildings. Betts commissioned Architect, Grosvenor Atterbury to build the house in 1897

 

 

 

 

He was direct descendant on his mothers side to John Eliot "Apostle to the Indians" and John Scovill, one of the original proprietors of Waterbury Conn.

 

He was Patent Lawyer in cases involving the patents of Edison, Westinghouse, Bell, Tesla and others. 

More info.... (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Passed away in 1905, dating the cane from 1897 to 1905.

Alright @SpooPoker I went back for the 50's (unless I'm royally effing up my tag reading) camo. I don't have any idea what the practical use was for this but it appears to have snaps on the bottom for snapping into/onto something else. It also has some interesting loop thing on the back which I have a picture of. In one of the pictures you can see the messed up snap. Still very interesting. I've got a closeup of the only tag I can find on it. It was worth grabbing for $3 just to examine closer if nothing else. If anyone has any ideas as to what this is let me know!

 

EDIT: When I search A.B.L. I'm getting hits for Belgian army clothes with what appear to be similar camo patterns.

EDIT 2: It appears that this is what's called a paratrooper smock.

No need for sass! I did my homework now that I have it here. I don't recall seeing the denison smock suggestion but I did find that it is likely a paratrooper smock. 

 

Edit again: Apparently denison smock is the same as a paratrooper smock.

I appreciate all the help, but with the number of posts in this thread it's easy to miss/forget one. I go through the pages and read the replies in order to avoid this sort of thing...
 
Thank you @futuremyth for the suggestion. You were right! I apologize for missing that.
