Remember the days of glamorous people frolicking on estates, rackets in hand, daintily chasing a stray shot. That was Lawn Tennis at the turn of the century and this is the stunningly preserved accouterment of that lifestyle. A complete Lawn Tennis set (EX) with rackets, net and four posts is entirely intact in its handsome original 39- by 12-inch wood box. Just smelling the wood rackets makes you want to put on your Victorian best and play. Wimbledon and the improvement of a vulcanized rubber ball was making tennis more competitive for both men and women, but any Lawn Tennis set taken home was probably for a weekend romp. In case your imagination isn't firing, the kit comes with original lithograph label inside box (VG) showing ladies and gentleman on country grounds playing doubles. Advantage, bidder.
