Unusual 1800's Victorian Carved Coquilla Nut Flea Trap ~

Description :

DESCRIPTION

Offered for sale is this unusual, Victorian, intricately carved, Coquilla Nut, Flea Trap. Carved from Brazilian Coquilla Nut in approx 1870's.This flea trap is of bottle shape, and is of a reasonable size, so would probably have been used within the bed covers. In the 18th & 19th century, flea traps were often filled with a few drops of blood honey or resin, [depending on your wealth]. Supposedly fleas would be attracted by the blood, enter through the holes and get stuck in the honey or resin. Normally you see the egg shaped ones, this shape is quite unusual. Measures 4 inches in length approx. This is one ot two flea traps being listed this week. Unscrews for access, in reasonable order, there is some wear and cracking within the nut, which is normal for nut. There are several openings/splits, some nics and nibbles in places. Lovely Patin, a very unusual item.
