Antique Lark Lure (brass ended)
Dimensions:W: 25cm (9.8")H: 45cm (17.7")D: 7cm (2.8")
I love these items, they are such a talking piece. The Lure was pushed into the ground and the head turned by pulling a thread hile the user hid in a bush nearby. Apparently the flashing of the rotating mirrors replicates the courtship markings from of a Skylark from above. The rival birds could then be shot with fine shot when they approached.
This Lure has a brass spike, mirrors in good condition
