Detroit Glass Minnow Tube These well-made, heavy glass lures were marketed around 1914 with the idea that a single minnow could live inside the Detroit Glass Minnow Tube all day and catch fish after fish. These valuable lures had German silver fittings. Imagine casting one onto rip-rap or rocks! The lure cost over a dollar in an era when many people barely earned that much in half a day.
This unique space combines a homeowner’s love for fishing and her desire for luxury living. The Tackle Shack was designed as a fully functional space to prepare freshly caught fish and display the homeowner’s collections of rods and antique fishing lures.
