Originally used as a minnow bait holder, this vintage french galvanised bait holder can be used to complement your garden by placing a pot or bunch of flowers in it. It is in good condition for its age and use. The solid handle is firm and has an extra piece added under it for padding. The top is hinged on one side and there are air holes in the top. Alternatively for the keen fisher, you could put your bait into it and thwart the greedy seagulls.
A minnow is the term used to describe small freshwater or salt fish which are commonly used for bait.
