Following the successful purchase of a 150 reel collection last week, this week we have secured a 300 reel collection.
Spanning over 100 years of reel making from 1840 to the 1960’s, it’s a fabulous varied selection.
Ranging from the smallest named true antique brass collar winch I’ve ever seen to a tiny spike winch. A handful of early brass wide multiplier winches, all including a collar or clamp winch with leather insert, are very collectable and going up in the current market.
The Hardy Silex models are numerous, from an ex-wide Mahseer to a very rare Hidnominium model, only identified from the letter H on the inside and a glorious ring from the bright metal.
Silex variants are many, plus other unusual drum casting reels by makers such as Wallace Watson, J W Young, Albert Smith and more.
Perth style Victorian wood and brass salmon reels are stunning in all sizes, brass and ebonite models from 2” to 4 1/2” and brass reels galore.
Percy Wadham Cowes are rare, Hardy Wallis and Conquest trotting reels with a good collection of Homer and Allcock and J W Young Flick-em variant trotting reels to use or collect.
