Important Tennis Set in Original Case Belonging to Legendary Female Athlete Eleanor Randolph Sears

This suitcase containing three squash racquets and a box of Wright & Ditson Championship tennis balls belonged to Eleonora Sears, Hall of Fame tennis and squash player. One of the most important female athletes of the first half of the 20th century, Sears was a champion athlete in both tennis and squash, having won the US Open in 1912. Among her other claims to fame, she was a great-great-granddaughter of Thomas Jefferson. The exact date of the case is unknown, but it has shown the wear of age, which adds to its classic appearance. Provenance: From the estate of Eleonora Randolph Sears.
