Where does Gandalf the White's staff come from? Can't Post

In "Unfinished Tales," Tolkien says that Gandalf the Grey arrived in Middle-earth already in possession of a staff, so we can assume he was given the staff in Valinor. But when he returns as Gandalf the White, he is sent back naked. He is then taken to Lothlorien and clothed in white, but they make no mention of him receiving a staff.

Thoughts?

    The obvious supposition is that he was given a new staff in Lothlorien sador Send a private message to sador Dec 2 2009, 1:10pm
