I have for sale a very rare 19th century mechanical shoo-fly swatter used in General Stores & Saloon. As you can see the swatters are missing. However, they seem to be no more than a piece of wire with two swatters on each end. These are pretty rare but you can find a couple examples of this item online with the swatters. I did test the item and the mechanism works great and the little lever works well to stop and start. This is not the original key but it is an antique key that works just fine with the swatter. Overall the piece looks to be in good original condition. If you have any questions and/or need more photos please send me a message.
