Old style cray pot



made from suplejack

Spotted on the Moeraki Coast, East Coast of the South Island of New Zealand, 
while we were out and about a few years ago. 
My husband used to help his uncle make these pots when he was a boy,
 so he was really interested to find this.

  2. Like Rose, I don't know what suplejack is either. I took her lead and looked it up. This is certainly old! Great find! Thanks for linking up!

  5. I had the pleasure of visiting to New Zealand some years ago, but do not recall seeing anything like this. Most interesting.
