A very good alloy bodied fixed spool reel from the Hardy range circa 1940s/50s, this example completely original and in very good working condition with smooth operation to all functions.
In very good, working condition. The precision engineering of this reel is exceptional, a fine example of the make and model, fit to grace any collection.
In original condition with turned wooden handle. The brass frame being telescopic and complete with fitted point guard. A good example of this now obsolete item of fishing kit. Length when extended : 86cm and 33cm when closed.
A classic Hardy's reel in very good condition, this being the 4" model. Surface tarnishing only, the mechanism remains firm and sound.
Not often seen at this size, this horn is in remarkably good condition for its age - almost 200 years old. Some dings, of course but blows very well with a deeper tone than more modern horns. Swaine & Co. became Swaine & Adeney in 1834 so the engraved maker's details confirm its vintage. A worthy addition to any horn collection.
From the heyday of foxhunting - pre WW1 - a good example of the traditional pattern purpose-made leather pouch for holding a pewter sandwich tin designed to be strapped to the saddle. Best quality leather work with stitching intact. A piece of Edwardian history.
