Hi,

This is a 7inch english scarborough made from mahogany with brass fittings.Its spins for over 5 minutes even though it runs on a bush.The flanges have been drilled so as to make the reel lighter.It also boasts a slater latch which enables you to take the drum off the bracket.Circa 1920.Maker Unknown.Overall a fine piece of workmanship.I love the patina of the wood.
