ITEM DESCRIPTION

Vintage Antique Oneida Newhouse No. 6 Bear Trap, 44" Long, Massive & Heavy, Circa 1880.  Weighs a whopping 43 pounds, including the very massive original anchor chain.  The slickpan has raised letters that were part of the forging process which read "S. Newhouse Oneida Community, N.Y." with "No. 6" in the center.  Trap folds up for storage and is an impressive 44" long when fully opened out.  The trap jaws have some very wicked looking teeth (3 on each jaw, all original).  Still has a good deal of the original black paint and the rest shows old surface rust which has patinaed out very well.  Trap is still useable and has very strong springs.  If you want a nice vintage bear trap, this is the one!  The Newhouse Oneida No. 6 is the one all the collectors want, and one of these in this condition doesn't come along too often.  A wonderful old piece of American history.  FIRST TIME OFFERED!  Condition Very Good.
