Manufactured in the 1920's. Brass frame and fixtures. The basic concept of the Fur Getter is to attract all manner of furry critters right to the muzzle of this contraption through the use of the baited hook, where they meet their demise by attempting to run away with said bait which in turn pulls the hook which is attached to the trigger. Marked "TAYLOR FUR GETTER./F.C. TAYLOR FUR CO. ST. LOUIS. MO." on the left side of the frame, 1914 patent date on the reverse. It shows standard features and is mounted on a swivel stake/screw for mounting in logs or other game-rich environments.

Rating Definition:

Fine overall, with the brass showing an attractive antique patina overall with some scattered minor dings and handling marks and a mostly grey patina on the other metal. Does not hold at full cock, otherwise appears functional. An interesting curiosity or conversation piece for any collection.
