French Antique Terracotta Octopus Trap. Hand Painted Design

A rare and unusual find are these Octopus traps that have been painted. The post would be tied together on a rocky ledge and await their prey. Each morning the fishermen would put their hand in and hopefully remove the octopus.


Price is for each.


Circa 1920


Found; Carpentras
