This is an Exquisite 1880’s Horsman Lawn Tennis Kit in the Original Wooden Box with gorgeous multi-color lithograph label inside the lid and comes complete with the original contents. Complete and original to include: two Horsman flat-top rackets, the net, the wooden poles (with painted rings) to hold the net, a beautifully painted finial for atop each pole and the wood and rope anchors to support the poles. Of interesting note is a small paper label just below the large lithograph which indicates the seller. It reads: from - HAYES and BETIS - Booksellers and Stationers - 359 MAIN ST., BRIDGEPORT, CONN. This amazing vintage lawn tennis box is entirely original and remains in "as found" condition. In 23 years this is the only tennis box that we have ever encountered that has had the contents. An outstanding museum quality piece!
