Hardy Girodon Pralon japanned dry fly box & Victorian antique dry fly case & flies
A fine Hardy Girodon Pralon japanned dry fly box with 15 metal hinged lid compartments. The box measures 6-1/4″ x 3-3/4. original factory Hardy metal logo plate to lid. Cream lacquer interior with the original washable plate to the underside of the lid. All lids working well, assorted flies, and original tweezers. It comes with a Victorian black fine leather covered card box, 7″ x5″ x1-1/2″, pressed white metal filigree decorated latch. The lid and base are separated, so need a minor tape repair. The interior is just great, two parchment sheets each with green stitched felt strips. Both sided filled with many old trout flies in mainly brown colours. Good historical pice and together with the Hardy box they make a great display set.
