Product Details

This is an exceptional 1888 Horsman Lawn Tennis Box. This incredible vintage tennis item comes in the form of a wooden box that back in 1888, held a complete lawn tennis kit. Most likely it would have included two or four rackets, the net, the posts and stakes to assemble the net, and possibly a few lawn tennis balls. Unfortunately, those items are not present. However the box itself, with the original paper lithograph label has remained. The condition is unbelievable! The paper label is almost perfectly intact and the color simply could not be more brilliant. It must have been stored in just the right conditions for the past 123 or so years! The box measures 14 1/2"x 36" and the paper litho measures 12"x 22 1/2". Horsman was based in New York City and was the first American maker of lawn tennis equipment. This phenomenal vintage tennis box could be the cornerstone of any antique tennis collection!
