Vintage Charles Garcia Salesman Sample Lure Display RARE RARE RARE. Im not even sure where to start. I have two of these in different presentations.I would imagine these are the only two in existence. When Charles first began what is now the Abu Garcia company it was a small operation. This sign is when the company just began carrying fishing equipment instead of being just an import/ export company. They hadn't even re branded yet. Good chance he may have even laid hands on this piece.
Obviously hypothetical but entirely likely. This is a super cool piece. Would be fun to find all the missing lures and display it in all its glory!! It measures 18" x 24".If you need anything please ask. Make offer's and good luck! How did the Charles Garcia Corporation end up being the sole distributor of the Mitchell lines in the United states? It was 1946, and Jules Gumprich and Charles Garcia owned an import/export company named Impecco. Jules who lived in France sent one of the reels to his brother Otto, who was head of the Charles Garcia Co. Lenk, who worked for the company, saw the reel and asked if he could try and market it here in the United States. It wasn't long before sales grew to a point that Charles Garcia and co.
Would gear its business around the new found success. The Impecco company was the importer while Garcia continued the sales, advertising, etc. Upon Otto's retirement Tom Lenk became CEO of the company. Was the only distributor of Mitchell in the United sates from 1947 through 1978.
The company was moved in 1969 from New York City to Teaneck, N.
