Allcocks Christmas Box
For immediate sale in the goods in/goods out section of my website known locally as 'Just in, Sir!' an original Allcocks Counter Box dating to 1950 and containing ten unmounted 'silver' Devon Minnows each stamped 'Made in England' on the fins. The box was originally intended for Wholesale Only and the design was patented by E.S. & A. Robinson of Bristol under the British Patent No. 413380. It bears the Allcocks legend 'The Sign of Quality' alongside the trademark Stag emblem.
