Antique Mouse & Rat Trap Gallery

This page contains photos of antique mouse and rat  traps.  Most photos are from other collections. Of the over 6000 patents granted for various animal traps from 1836 through today, most are for mouse and rat traps. Of those, many were never produced, several were only produced for a short time, and some traps produced were never covered under a U.S. Patent. One could spend a lifetime trying to obtain every type of mouse or rat trap ever made, and they would still be missing several varieties. I have spent much of my life collecting, studying, researching and preserving these interesting examples of mankind's ingenuity. I certainly hope you will get as much enjoyment from looking over these items as I have.
  Have fun and enjoy looking.
