Been away from my local junk shops for over 3mths. Trawling today I located this very unusual shaped popper, first of this shape I've ever seen. Twisted wire eyelets, cupped face, no eyes? Any clues?
Regards, Seaweed.

Same all around Barry, except for a flash of red under chin, and the dark strip across back that you can see in the pic.
Have you ever seen poppers of this hour-glass shape?

This one cracked thanks to Peter on FB and Cranky on here, it's a BK Bruce Kilpatrick popper. An identical one is shown in LureHubOz, proving how invaluable this site is becoming.
