Lovely early 1892 perch by J.S. Cooper & Sons. Please note that this case and the following case are caught by the same angler in 1892 and 1893-ideally therefore they should be kept as a pair. This is a bow fronted, gold lined, original case with paper label to top left hand side confirming the perch caught by Jas A. Jay in 1892. As can be seen from the photograph this case has a half circle crack at the bottom of the case which has been glued and appears to be stable.

Another cracking J.S.Cooper & Sons early perch from 1893-please see the 'sister' case (above) to this fish alongside-as indicated these two are caught by the same angler and I would very much like to keep these together if possible. This is a gilt lined, bow fronted, case with a hand written label to the top left hand side confirming this fish was also caught by Jas A. Jay in 1893. Cooper was at about his peak with his groundwork in the 1890s producing some of the best cases to look at during this period and to have a matching pair of fish by the same angler is a rare opportunity to collect.

Who says you can't have a cased pike because they take up too much room................ This is a lovely little jack pike, no taxidermist details in a flat front case approximately 21 1/2" by 12" by 4" so can squeeze into the tightest spaces!
