- More Details
This is a nice vintage tightly woven split willow fishing creel from the 40's. The original carry handle and closing strap/buckle are all perfect and working. This is a No.15 that was Made in Japan for the American Tackle Shops since the 1900's as were all the baskets the famous Oregon Creel Makers used to dress with their saddle quality leather. Creels were originally sold without the harness which was a after market purchase and this creel was found with a aftermarket harness (appears to be new old stock of a later period) which is included. This creel measures approximately 15" across its bottom. It is trimmed in pigskin leather. 9" marked measure along top rear of lid. Please click on its image for additional closeups!
