S/5837 Antique Treen 19th Century Drop Weight Mouse Trap

An early 19th century drop weight mouse trap in oak, as illustrated in Pinto, page and plate 175. The oak superstructure houses a solid oak block, which is released by an arm with a string and wedge attached to a trigger when the mouse enters to feed, and therefore releasing the trigger. These items are quite rare these days and seldom appear on the market. The whole has a pleasing colour and patination.
