Vintage Rare Frederick Vom Hofe Brass Casting Reel W/ball Handle, 2:1 Multiplier For Sale

Vintage Rare Frederick Vom Hofe Brass Casting Reel W/ball Handle, 2:1 Multiplier

Up for offer is oneVintage Brass Multiplier Casting Reel with Ball Handle, Threaded Bearing Cap, and 2:1 geared multiplier. I'm not sure how to classify this reel, based on the size of the foot I would guess it would have been used for salt water fishing or perhaps large fresh water species. There is no Clicker or Drag. The front cover is marked "F. V. HOFE, MAKER". This reel is constructed of brass. It is in good working condition. Thehandle is missing the wood knob, there is a plastic knob that is not original. The foot appears to be machined from one piece of brass and has signs of having been filed at both ends. On the bottom of the foot it is engraved with "150". This is a nice looking and nice working reel with exception of the missing knob. It has minimal scratches from use. The bearing cap is threaded. The bottom of the cover has a slash mark that extends onto theadjoining front plate which is a feature that is used to identify F. Vom Hofe reels as well.
From what I've been able to find on the internet, Frederick Vom Hofe began making reels in 1857, and reels were marked F. VOM HOFE. He became partners with his son Julius in 1860 and began marking reels F. VOM HOFE & SON. He remained making reels until 1882 when he retired, thus this reel would have been made within that time span of 1857 to 1860 before his partnership with Julius.
It measures 2-3/4" diameter, 4-3/8" deep including the handle, pillars are about 1-7/8" long, and has a foot measuring 3" long by 3/4" wide. The foot is marked on the bottom with "150" (see photo). It weighs 13.6 ounces, with packaging it will ship below 2 pounds. I combine shipping and pass the savings on, so please view my other items. Thank you for looking.
