Rare Antique Mcmonies (macmonies) Fishing Creel W/ Zipperd Top And Front Pouch For Sale
This sale is for the most sought after fishing creel made, this is a Very rare fishing creel hand made by W.H. McMonies (MacMonies) in Portland, Oregon in the early 1900's with the zippered top and front pouch.
Known for the distinctive buckstitching on their creels, an involved
process that required hand stitching with leather straps, the work of
the W.H. McMonies Company exemplifies the true beauty of the leather
bound fishing creel. The first to incorporate zippers into the lids,
replacing the traditional buckled strap, as in this model 80 (I believe, although it is not marked) creel,
they also utilized the zipper on the front leather pouches on their high
grade models. With distinctive "snake" pattern embossing in both the
half leather lid and front pocket, and fine French weave in original color (most McMonies are found in red, green or brown), this creel
is in great condition, with the exception of a small area with a break to the reeds by the opening in the top (see pic) and wear to the front leather,
The reverse retains the original rare "MACMONIES HAND MADE PORTLAND. ORE."
metal plate. McMonies is the correct
spelling of the company. A typo was made on a batch of the name badges.
Rather than re-order correctly spelled badges, they used up the
misspelled badges on creels until they were gone.It has great patina and both zippers are in excellent condition.The sale also includes the original Tooled buckskin leather shoulder strap. One of the small straps has broken and could be easily replaced.Dimensions: 16 1/2" x 9 1/2" x 10"Please contact me with any questions that you may have before offerding.Payment is due withing 5 days of the sales closing.I have to add 20% to shipping for winning buyers east of the MississippiThank you!!
