Very Nice 15" vintage tightly woven split willow fishing creel with leather trim . Has front mounted accessory pocket with both snaps working! This is a vintage Japanese creel produced for the American Tackle Shops since the early 1900's. These are the same split willow baskets purchased by the famous Oregon creel makers to trim in their quality saddle leather and tooling detail. This one is probably circa late 1930's. It was found with a harness which was an after market purchase. Willow has a nice patina and the leather trim has aged used patina! This creel displays beautifully and retains a rear carry handle, front closing strap and buckle! Just an outstanding wall hanger for home, cabin, or lodge!
