A bench made bait boat from Prince Rupert, BC. These are rare and were made to hold bait and keep it fresh during fishing. We have had three of these over the years. Each one is unique and each has a strong folky presentation.
This is made of metal with the added flourish of a mother of pearl handle. The second picture shows it in a plexiglas mount we had made for display purposes.
Circa 1930's. Overall length is 21".
