Mustad Key Brand Fish Hooks Sample Book

Salesman’s sample book of nearly 100 vintage O. Mustad & Son fishhooks in an expandable 9 section book, Circa 1900. Each page has multiple vintage labels of the historic Norwegian fishing supply company. There are a few hooks missing, but majority is there in a classic display with ornate borders. Red cloth board which shows fraying to edges and age wear, though presents itself fully for any antique fishing gear collector. VG. O. MUSTAD & SON started their production of fish hooks in the 1870s, they soon realized that the hooks coming out of their machines were not fit to fish with. They were too soft and rusted after a day in water. The founder, Hans Mustad, then summoned specialists from Redditch, England, to help him solve the problems. They were specialists in tempering, design and fly-tying. Mustad is today the leading manufacturer of fish hooks in the world.
