A rare Hawaiian Islands coral stone, wood and shell octopus lure & sinker
19th CENTURY

Size: 20.5cm high x 9.5cm wide
There is a very similar octopus lure illustrated in the Oldman

Collection and described as 'a cuttle fish bait sinker, Oahu, Hawaii'.

There is another example in the Dublin Museum that is thought to be

part of the Cook Voyage Collection given to Trinity College, Dublin by

Patten or King, but this is thought to be from Tahiti.
