In good condition though the lettering has worn off , the fish hangs from its metal wall bracket. S. Allcock of Redditch was the most famous maker of fishing rods and reels in England going back to 1803. It was bought by American company Noris Shakespeare in the 1960's. Second to bottom photo shows a similar Allcock's sign in pristine condition with cat to show scale ! Bottom photo of Polycarp Allsopp the company's founder with history.
