A pike set in a flat fronted, gilt lined case by J S Cooper & Sons with Cooper trade label to top right of case. Fish approximately 17lbs from approximately 1880-case 43” by 16” by 8” 


Chub A lovely early 1860s brown trout by Sanders. In a bow fronted, gilt lined, case with hand written label to the top left hand of the case stating "Taken in the River Lea 9th February 1864 by Mr J Thomson Weight 3lb 4oz". As with most Sanders cases the fish is still almost perfect given that this fish is now around 150 years old! All original glass-gilt lining has lost a little of its crisp edging however so would most of us if we were 150...
