Lot is comprised of: A) The highlight of this lot is a large beaver trap with 8" jaws, measuring 24" overall, of hand-forged iron. Bottom inscribed "G*A" and dated "1755." Dated 18th century traps are extremely rare and very few exist. The trap is in very good condition with dark patina overall, pad is missing; otherwise functional and complete. B) Iron varmint trap, probably circa 1900, stamped "GILPA" on top of spring. Gilpa was established in 1873 as Gilbertson and Page in London, England. Measures 9 1/2" overall with 3" jaws. Good condition with some pitting and heavy brown patina. C) Large, probably 18th century, beaver trap, hand-forged iron construction, measures 30" overall with 6" jaws. Very good condition with dark patina. Complete with chain and hook, functional and complete. This is a very nice grouping of early and desirable traps.
