Vintage Hardy Brothers Ltd 15 Compartment Fly Box & 28 Flies Japanned Steel For Sale
Vintage Hardy Brothers Ltd 15 Compartment Fly Box & 28 Flies Japanned Steel Description
A Vintage Black Japanned Steel Hardy Brothers Ltd Compartmented Fly Box, with an assortment of Fishing Flies.
The Flies themselves look to be in good condition, there is very slight surface corrosion to some of the Hooks, but they have no major damage.
There are approximately 28 Flies in the Box and although they came to me all together in the Box I cannot be sure that they are actual Hardy Flies, but it is logical to assume that at least some are.
The Lid which bears the Hardy Bros Ltd Makers Alnwick Eng Nameplate is very slightly concave and the exterior of the Box has signs of use and age generally as shown, but this apart it is all intact and structurally sound including the Hinges, the Lid fits well and it stays closed as required.
The interior has some Paint loss and signs of use, there is one compartment Door missing, and one tab to a Door also missing, all the remaining Doors operate freely and firmly, and there are no other structural issues or major damage.
The Flies and Box are being sold all as one lot.
Very collectable good quality vintage Fishing Tackle.
All the above is as shown comprehensively in the pictures, please examine them in close up before you offer, to satisfy yourself as to condition, suitability, etc. of the item(s) shown.
I always show items in their true light, and will never deliberately hide a negative or detrimental aspect.
The Fly Box measures approx' :- 15.60 cms x 9.40 cms x 2.40 cms.
Box and Flies together weigh approx :- 238.0 gms ( unpacked ).
Any questions please get in touch, and good luck should you decide to offer.
I will post in the U.K. by First or Second Class Recorded Mail only, and Worldwide only by Royal Mail International Signed For.
I believe these to be more secure Postal methods, and better for the peace of mind of both Buyer and Seller, they are well worth the extra cost, as they are all trackable and /or require a signature on delivery.
Many apologies for the Postage increase, Royal Mail I'm afraid, not my decision as I am sure you appreciate.
More than one Lot to the same Address at the same time will of course be at a discount, please get in touch with your requirements for a quote.
To all potential buyers... Should you consider my Postage Charges to be expensive I would rather you didn't offer and then leave me bad Detailed Seller Ratings on Postage Cost afterwards, ....I would much prefer that you first take into account the Postage Costs which are displayed clearly in the Listing, and then offer accordingly. Many Thanks.
I always provide a Top-Class Service, and a well packed item, please see my response for references.
Thank-you for looking.
