B James & Son 111/4 ft THE AVOCET (made in Ealing, London circa 1955)

11
1/4 ft traditional general purpose three piece 1lb TC Avon rod (actually 11ft 4in including screw-in rubber button) with whole tonkin cane butt, dark built cane middle & top (probably by Bob Southwell), 25" full cork handle, aluminium sliding reel fittings, threaded & tapered aluminium butt cap with detachable red rubber button, traditional split-ring hook keeper, bronzed brass splint-end suction ferrules (perfect fit, no knocks or excess wear). Recently refurbish with original style Aqualite lined stand-off butt ring, chromed brass stand-off intermediates and Aqualite lined Hopton end ring. Only the guides & ferrule whippings have been replaced and the whole rod re-varnished. Excellent condition with a very slight droop (like its current owner) and complete with hardwood & cork ferrule stoppers and good quality, probably original, but much faded & shrunken (I washed it!) partitioned cloth bag with hanging loop.

GBP 425.00 (Item reference CRD300) + 20.00 for UK Mainland delivery (excluding Scottish Highlands) in a plastic rod tube.

B James & Son (London, England) RICHARD WALKER MkIV (circa early 1950's)

10ft (actually 10'3" overall) two piece dark built cane 11/2 lb TC carp rod (almost certainly a Bob Southwell blank) with 28 full cork handle, knurled aluminium sliding winch fittings, threaded tapered aluminium butt cap with red rubber button, "trumpet" front end and stepped aluminium shoulder collar. Bronzed brass reinforced splint-end suction ferrules (perfect fit with no knocks or excess wear), turned hardwood & cork ferrule stopper, Aqualite lined butt & tip guides with chromed brass low cradle intermediates and dark green closely spaced graduated whippings. All fittings appear original except the tip ring which has recently been replaced and is correct. Weight: 133/4 oz.

At first glance this excellent rod has the appearence of a 1st version early '50s Ealing rod ("trumpet" handle, stepped shoulder collar & very dark cane) but the transfer & cloth bag state "London, England" so either the rod was a transitional 1955 version or else an early 1950s rod that was factory refurbished* around 1955-57 when a "London" transfer and cloth bag would have been added?
* I think "factory refurbished" is the most likely theory evidenced by the cork handle showing more signs of use than the rest of the rod (which is why I have not cleaned it!) in which case it would probably have been made pre-1955 ...unless you know better?

Whatever it's history it is certainly a very nice highly useable, attractive & collectable rod in excellent condition complete with partitioned cloth bag with hanging loop...

GBP 590.00 (Item reference CRD301) + 15.00 for express UK Mainland delivery (except Scottish Highlands) in a plastic rod tube.
