Description

Alvey Junior Fishing Tackle Box made of Bakelite early plastic.  Circa 1950’s.  measures 11cm diameter x 2cm in height.  One photo has been taken in sunlight, the second image indoors.  Apart from two scratches on the front above the “B’ for ‘box’  it has no damage.  We don’t think it has ever been used – which is a bit of a shame, but it does make it a near perfect example of its kind.

Charles Alvey migrated to Australia in 1910.  In 1920 his firm was registered, based in Brisbane.   In 2020 the family owned company celebrated 100 years in business.  The Alvey brand continues on today.
