Eel Spears Everywhere

Our collection of eel spears are popping up in media all over thanks to the marketing team at the San Francisco Fall Antiques Show and Tucker & Marks. C Magazine cleverly juxtaposed them with a vibrant Seba print from Arader Galleries (Perhaps there's an eel among those snakes?).

The spears can also be found in the October issue of Art and Antiques magazine along with a sampling of other pieces that will be on display at the show.


The diversity of shapes and sizes among the spears or gigs or gleaves creates a strong graphic impression and lends itself to a striking presentation on the printed page or in a wide variety of interiors. They certainly caught our eye when we first saw them.
