Tennis Ensemble, ca. 1900

antique victorian tennis ensemble 1900 1 antique victorian tennis ensemble 1900

What a tennis ensemble! Unique convolute from the late Victorian era, ca. 1900. Origin: French collection. In the 1870s, modern lawn tennis was invented in Great Britain and spread first to Europe, the United States and the colonies of the British Empire. By the turn of the century, tennis tournaments with international participation were already being held in Europe. In 1900, the Davis Cup was the first international tennis competition. Playing tennis was en vogue in certain social circles and a popular sport - even for ladies.

The ensemble we present today consists of a skirt, top, shoes, hat and tennis racket.

The skirt is made of a beige cotton fabric. Closure by means of lacing. The skirt falls slightly bell-shaped. In the lower part there are applications with tennis rackets. Very well preserved. Two smaller stains in the upper area, one larger (lighter) in the hem area. Since the skirt was dusty, we had it carefully cleaned. We draped it with a petticoat.

The striped top closes in the front with mother-of-pearl buttons. Lace appliques at the bust and cuffs. Small peplum. High stand-up collar. Small puff sleeves. Very well preserved.

Straw hat has Lyon label inside. Very well preserved. Hats of this type were worn while playing tennis. The hat was fastened on the highly toupeed hair by means of hat pins.

The sports boots are made of canvas. Well preserved. The boots appear to have been painted white. A normal process for boots of this type. This is also how these sport boots were "cleaned" 120 years ago.

The tennis racket is more recent. The blade, which is covered with cord, is defective. Old tennis racket tensioner made of wood.
