If you are in the least bit prudish or of a delicate nature, I would recommend you read no further as there follows an image that some may consider rude.
Cocus (Brya ebenus) was a prized cabinet wood in the late seventeenth-century, used to great effect on cabinets, chests and escritoires etc.
A rare Charles II cocus-oyster-veneered cabinet-on-stand, circa 1670. (Mallett)
Cocus’ striking appearance in conjunction with its dense, fine texture also lent itself to the production of treen and other small personal items.
At an English auction in 2010, a pair of eighteenth-century French cocus godemiché in a fitted leather travelling case fetched £3,600 (around $6,500). Brentwood Antiques Auction’s aptly named auctioneer, Wendy Wood, described the dildos as “extraordinary and exceptionally rare.”

Jack……I salute you!
Imagine if the auction had not met its reserve… It would have been a complete cock-up!
For the Frenchman with a wife and two mistresses an absolute necessity!
I feel like splinters would be of special concern.
