Prince Albert Tobacco Tin Wrapped Ice Fishing Spearing Decoy - 8 3/4” Long
Now Here is Something Quite Different in an Ice Fishing Spearing Decoy. This Has a Wood Carved and Yellow and Black Painted Body with Extra Large Glass Eyes and Then Wrapped in an Old Prince Albert Tobacco Tin to Provide the Needed Weight. The Prince Albert Tin was also Used to Create the 4 Tin Swimming Fins. There is also a Flag Like Rotating “Fin” Nailed to the Top with an Old Square Nail the Provides the Connection to the Line on the Jigging Stick and Swimming Motions. It is Likely from the 1940’s or So. It is 8 3/4” Long. The Original Condition is Quite Good. I Have Not Seen the Use of Product Tins Used to Create the Sinking Weight. A Clever Idea for a Person Who Probably Did Not Have the Means to Melt and Pour Lead.
