Old Rare Antique Brass Collar / Clamp Winch Vintage Fishing Reel 1850s maybe earlier. Well what can I say about this reel?Known as a Clamp or Collar Winch it is made of brass and was most probably made in Birmingham U. Please look at Phil Waller's Book FISHING REELS COLLECTING FOR ALL VOL 2 PAGE 8. Note the reel at the top of the page. My reel is similar as it has a round iron ball as a handle and the clamp. Please also note my reel has a locking bar.
Photo 8 shows an iron rivet like the old clocker makers used so points to an early reel. The hole in the spindle is near to the edge again pointing to an early reel. Approx size is side plate 1 3/4 inches 45. Condition The reel works well (no check was ever fitted) retains all its original finish it also has a lot of green verdigris patina which has been on it since I bought it approx 35 years ago.
