Rare 19th Cent East Anglian Bentwood Seed Lip in good original condition. This went round the Sower's waist and hung from a neck strap using the lug hooks. The seed was then broadcast by hand as the Sower walked. These are exceptionally rare in wood, many later ones survived in galvanised metal. Very nice grip handle and an original patch repair in tin.
