George Lawrence tooled leather 4AP model Tillamook fishing creel and harness Portland Oregon. Signed twice, once with metal tag on flap on front and pre 1940 tag, and on harness strap. Model number 4AP is stamped on lid. Please see all 19 photos. Remarkably good condition for its age and intended use.Inside the creel is in great shape as is the front tackle pocket, no splits or holes in the wicker. Lid hinge is excellent as is all the leather attached to the wicker with no splits.Leather carrying handle is in good shape as is the large tooled shoulder harness strap. Condition issues - The harness where it runs through the wicker has multiple cracks and dryness, I have addressed this with neetsfoot oil. The harness itself can simply be removed for display. Three of the attaching point hardware buckles have corrosion and that has bubbled off the nickel plating.
