Spalding 1880s Checkered Handle
SPALDING Rain Drop Tennis Racket c1880s w/ early Wreath Logo & Checkered Handle
~ Rare Very Early "SPALDING" Antique Racket ~
A very fine example of an 1880s Spalding with Rain Drop shaped head, which were being made during the same period of time as flat tops.
Nice gold wreath logo and cross hatched handle.
The frame is straight. Butt collar intact. Solid convex wedge. Particularly nice DARK patina.
Very old thick string (probably original) with 3 breaks in top right corner.
