Object Description

A good Georgian drop weight mouse trap, as illustrated in Pinto plate 175. The oak superstructure is above a solid oak block, which is released by an arm with a string and wedge attached to a trigger when the mouse enters to feed, it therefore releases the trigger. These items are quite rare these days and it is unusual as it is in solid oak. The whole has a pleasing colour and retains a good patination. The wedge and arm has been replaced.
