J.A Coxe Reel Oil Bottle
This great J.A Coxe Reel Oil bottle shows us that yes there are other things we can collect besides just the lures, reel and rods themselves. This hard to find oil bottle is part of a segment of collecting, Reel Oil Bottles, Rod Varnish Bottles, even Fly Dope or Mosquito Repellents. Thus giving some of us hoarders a green light to add and amass something else outside of the proverbial tackle box. J.A. Coxe began manufacturing and selling reels on the west coast. Coxe an Ex Shakespeare Reel Company employee turned his small company to one of the largest Reel Manufactures in the whole country. The company would early on move its operations to Bronson, Michigan and would seemingly have changed is small handcrafted reel stature to an assembly line typ production of some of America’s most favored Bakelite reels.
