Definitely look a lot like old Seekers shape wise. Stephen I know you're a fan - how many were made by Ken without the serrated bib?

Cheers,

Danny.

I would bet both that they were Ken Hendry Stumpjumpers possibly earlier than his serrated Mudbug bib models.
 
Just a shame about the condition but don't give them away cheaply Steve.

Wonder if these would have been signed "Seeker" originally ?.
 
Unfortunately the two or three collectors that probably know the answer will probably not be able on this forum and I can't check out old photos on the other forum which appears to be crashed at the moment.

I reckon 99% probability Ken Hendry.
 
That's why I'm prepared to bet both though at my age that's not as important a bet as it would have once been.
 
Cheers, Jim

In my limited knowledge of Victorian lure makers, I'll say one thing, Ken Hendry only maker I've seen to use that 'Philip Headed' screw to secure the bib, anyone agree.

I know bugger all about Kens lures but that was the name that came to mind on first glance before looking at responses. Whilst the condition of the lures are poor the timber grain, tow wires, wire hangers, squared end, paint pattern / eyes seen and those Phillips head screws (very seeker) should be enough to ID for early Seeker collectors I would hope.
Some of the most interesting lures I have seen for a while here anywayThumbs Up
