This vintage fishing lure comes from the Horrocks-Ibbotson Co. that was apparently in the business of making fishing tackle since 1812. The lure looks somewhat like a frog, green body with black markings, large yellow and black eyes and a red, open mouth and it`s "tail" appears to be white streamers. It has two, three barbed hooks hanging from the lower side. On the original package it lists it as being a #1162 Popperoo 3/8 oz lure. On the back of the cardboard it reads; Japan.
The lure is in very good, apparently unused condition and measures about 2 1/4" in length excluding the tail and streamers. The cardboard shows soiling and staining and the plastic the lure is encased in is yellowed, cracked along the corners, scratched and soiled.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
