Antique Primitive Mouse, Rat, Rodent, Trap; Early 1900s Live Catch & Release


Here's a very primitive looking antique trap for mice, rats, or any other kind of small rodents. Made of metal, it resembles a crude cage of sorts. It's a live-catch trap, the vermin caught can be caught and released without harm. It looks to be more than a Century old, is complete, and appears to be still functional. The trap is about 16 1/4" long x 9" wide x 6 1/2" high. It has a door that opens to get the captives out and a handle on top for carrying. It shows age with an original, as-found patina, complete with minor surface rust. This piece is as-found right out of an old barn and looks great displayed among primitives and other antique oddities!
