Wright of Edinburgh Salmon Winch 4 1/4"

1911


A nice Wright of Edinburgh salmon winch, 4 1/4" diameter with 1 5/8" spool width. I know relatively little about Wright's as a maker, though this reel is in fine condition. Interestingly it has no drag incorporated into the design at all. All brass throughout. "Wright, Maker / Edin" engraved into a shield design opposite the handle on the winding plate. Other than normal cosmetic wear from a reel of this age, I could find no real defects. The foot is relatively straight (one side has an ever-so-slight upward angle to it, easily fixed) and the brass has a nice patina throughout. Wood handle. A nice early example of a classic salmon winch.

Shipping Information
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
Other Terms
Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
