Wood and Gauze Maggot Sieve

A wood and gauze maggot sieve. Of considerable age (possibly pre-war) and riddled with worm for which it has been treated. The condition and form of the handles which are offset give a clue to its age as does the deterioration of the original painted sides.  Most probably used to sieve maggots or worms. Cleared recently from the premises of F. Clover & Son a lost fishing tackle shop found in a back street of North London which had remained locked for over twenty years until I was fortunate to gain access. You may read more of this discovery in my piece 'The Shop on Holy Street' a collaboration with the photographer Nick Fallowfield-Cooper in the new issue (9) of Fallon's Angler which is out on Friday 31st March and buy holy items from the shop on my site for as long as they remain.
