- More Details
1940's vintage split willow creel tightly woven in great condition. It has trimming and its original rear carry handle, front closing strap & buckle are all intack! The rear carry handle is still in tack. It also has a beautiful after market (later & new old stock) leather shoulder harness that has great patterns embossed on it. It measures approximately 15" across its bottom. It was Made in Japan where 90% of all creels since the 1900's were imported from for the American Tackle Shops. Even the baskets that George Lawrence and other Oregon Creel makers leathered were mostly from Japan as well! Overall this creel appears great. Great addition to collection or to display!
