Antique 3" Fishing wood Lure - green spotted Fred Arbogast - Jitterbug spinner Gift for dad - fisherman hobby - vintage novelty gift
This is one of many from a collection of antique lures we purchased years ago from an old bait shop that used them for display. I will be adding them all soon.
Fred Arbogast was one of the true pioneers of the fishing lure industry. As with so many who enter the lure business, it began as a hobby. Arbogast began by carving lures for himself and friends while employed by the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. As his lures began to become popular with area anglers, some of the local tackle shops began asking if they could buy them to sell in their stores. Soon after, Arbogast became aware that he was really on to something. Armed with this new-found popularity and confidence in his lures, he resigned from Goodyear and decided to enter the lure business in earnest…that was in 1926. Two years later, the Fred Arbogast Company was officially formed.
Sometimes, a personal well thought out gift shows you took the time to care about that special person in your life. Our items are classic, sometimes unusual and vintage and sometimes a little bizarre. Whether it is a memory from their past or something that reminds you of how special they are, purchasing from us is a unique idea that you can’t get from a store every day.
Just say the word and we will wrap it and put a beautiful bow on it for you at no extra charge .
All you have to do it watch them smile and enjoy their special gift
Because these are vintage estate pieces and are vintage and possibly pre-worn so they are not considered new from the factory….. Please see photos for any wear or light surface scratches that come with age.☺………………. Sold as is and priced accordingly.. All jewelry ( unless otherwise specified) is considered costume jewelry. We don’t polish these previously owned well loved pieces so we can keep the original patina. We try and photograph all of the pieces next to a ruler so you can see the actual size. All jewelry sold as found.
We use the descriptions of any stones from the manufacturers titles when they were first produced. When we refer to the stones as moonstone or jade or garnet, for example, we are using how the original manufacturer of the pieces used them. We cannot guarantee the authenticity of a stone in a costume piece of jewelry. All pieces have been worn at least one time unless otherwise specified. Although the pieces we carry are unique and interesting they may have a little wear ( if any) but they sure have a lot of love that came with them when they were first purchased way back when.
Just click on our photos for more close ups to help you see all the cool detail on each piece.
I will be happy to combine shipping if you purchase from both.
DO WE ENGRAVE?: We Do not offer engraving services of any sorts as we are not equipped to do so I’m sure your local jeweler would be happy to do so, sorry for any inconvenience thank you.
Do you need to convert our US ring sizes to your country>?
This page will be a big help.
