Classic Hunting and Fishing Watch Fob

During late victorian era and the early years of the twentieth century there was no shortage of popular magazines for the hunting and fishing enthusiast.  

Periodicals such as Outers' Recreation; American Rifleman; Hunter Trader Trapper; Outing Magazine, Forest and Stream, Fur, Fish and Game; and (in Canada) Rod and Gun offered wonderful tales of high adventure with rod and gun for every outdoorsman.

It was probably one of these magazines that offered this delightful bronze watch fob to its readers.  This fob came from London, Ontario, Canada, and features four linked panels with a round medallion at the bottom.  

One side depicts hunting scenes with upland game, powder horns, rifles, and hunters with dogs.  The opposite side offers fishing scenes with rods, creels, tackle, and fishermen in canoes.
