Antique MOULINET DECANTILLE 4" French Reel


Offered for sale is the Rare MOULINET FRANCOIS "DECANTILLE" Reel made in France. The reel is engraved on the rear as follows: "MOULINET FRANCOIS 'DECANTILLE' BREVETE S.G.D.G L.P.S. Type B 5010". This is a very rare antique Silex style reel, with a smooth brass full foot with 4 screws, twin crank handles (1 ivorine and 1 wood?), a perforated spool, a brass rim tensioner, right hand wind, the reel being 4" wide, the spool being 1" wide and 1/2" deep, with an ivorine casting trigger, with a tension adjustment knob on the rim of the cage, a left handed threaded slotted drum retaining nut, retaining almost all of it's gray gun metal leaded finish.

A bit of Google research revealed a bit of history about this reel. We learned that BREVETTA in short means PATENT, and the initials S.G.D.G. stands for a disclaimer by the French government. BREVETA S.G.D.G. stands for: "Patented without the Guarantee of the government; was in France a "legal notice loosening the State (FRANCE) of the responsibility of the effective smooth running of this patented devise".

Reportedly, HARDY BROS, Ltd. took over this design on the manufacture of the Moulinet reel and later produced the Hardy Decantelle reel.

This lovely old French Reel has the original patina well preserved and cared for.
