Malloch of Perth all brass 4″ Patent side casting reel, best Ive seen c 1900
One of the best condition antique Malloch of Perth Patent all brass side casting reels Iv seen in years. Dates c 1900, a great addition to any collection. 4″ diameter backplate retains all the original bronzing as does the twisting casting eye and correct 84mm smooth brass foot.Cross hatched slide lock button allows the foot assembly to turn through 90 degrees to cast and then retrieve. A single drum screw makes this the non reversible drum model, 1885-1900. the reel winds silky smooth and has a constant check clicker. One of the best examples Ive seen for any collector.
