Nova Scotia Lobster Traps

 

Lobster trap as décor

Vintage domed wooden lobster traps from the coast of Nova Scotia. Each lobsterman would haul 200 to 300 of these on and off his boat every couple of days during “the season”, removing lobsters and refilling the bait bags rain or shine. They would have big stone weights inside each trap to make sure they found the bottom.

Each trap would have one of our large lobster buoys attached with a long rope, and they were painted with the individual fishermans colours, so there would be 200 to 300 matching buoys to go with the traps. Create your own nostalgic theme with our traps! We also have flat top traps upon request

Lobster Crates

These wooden lobster crates were used up and down the Eastern seabord to store lobsters in the water for a limited time. The water could flow in and out and, when needed, the crates would be hauled back into the boat to sell. Approx measurements are 32 inches (81 cm) long x 21 inches (53.3 cm) wide x 13 inches (33 cm) high. They make great storage and stack well. We have used them for casual seating at beach gatherings.

Price: $65
