For sale here is a scarce John Clark Saddlery of Portland, Oregon split willow leathered creel. Clark made creels until about 1928. Outside dimensions: 15"+ in width, 9 1/2" in height, and roughly 8" deep. Inside dimensions: 13"+ in width, 8 1/2" in height, and roughly 5" deep. The creel basket itself is very tightly woven and solid. Every original part seems intact, except for the shoulder strap, which is missing, and the lid has some stitching detached as shown in the last two photos. There is also some writing on the leather near the handle on the backside -- a name and a date around Christmas in 1926.
Simply a gorgeous and classic creel that will look excellent anywhere you choose to display it.
