Tennis Ensemble, ca. 1904

antique tennis ensemble 1904 1 antique tennis ensemble 1904

Unique tennis ensemble from the early years of the Edwardian period, ca. 1904. In the 1870s, modern lawn tennis was invented in Great Britain, which first spread to Europe, the USA 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 tennis dress, shoes, hat, tennis racket, belt and jabot.

The dress is made of brown cotton fabric. Front closure by means of hooks and eyes (inside) and buttons (outside). The top is lined inside, the skirt is not. Long sleeves with cuffs. Button closure of the sleeves (one button missing from each). Very well preserved. Discreet signs of age and wear.

Sport boots are white canvas. American label of the Keds company. In good condition. The boots appear to have been painted white. A normal process for boots of this type. This is also how these athletic shoes were "cleaned" 115 years ago.

Ladies straw hat that was put on when playing tennis. The hat was fastened on the highly toupeed hair by means of hat pins. Small punctures can still be seen. Beige silk ribbon. The hat is in very good condition. Only the (inner) lining of the hat pot is shredded.

The tennis racket is an original from the period. Well preserved. Signs of age.

The belt has an old mother of pearl buckle. The fabric may have been renewed.

The jabot is made of lace; the high stand-up collar is emphasized with it.
