Hi there,

Can anyone tell me what those royal cane-like accessories -- from maybe the Henry VIII times (at a guess) -- were called? Stereotypically, they had the round jewel on the top? Was it even a cane? Or just a fashion accessory?

Thanks.

I think you're refering to a royal scepter (generally each has it's own unique name). They are symbolic.

Sceptre - and the round ball held in the other hand was the Orb.
