FOR AUCTION - A GREAT PAIR OF ORIGINAL ANTIQUE JAQUES PING PONG or GOSSIMA DRUM BATS/PADDLES
IN THEIR ORIGINAL BOX . c. 1900.
THE DRUM PADDLES ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION - the handles are covered in leather over wooden handles - the leather remains
remarkably soft almost like chamois and is a pleasure to hold , the stitches can be clearly seen,
it looks as though the leather was originally painted black this has long since rubbed off. ( THE PADDLES ARE SO WELL PRESERVED,
THAT I FEEL SURE THEY COULD STILL BE PLAYED WITH ! )
Paddles measure 14 inches long and 5.25 inches wide.
THE BOX - Unfortunately the cloth covered box has not faired well over the years - the bottom part has one end which is turned down
the lid is missing the long side piece, the cloth is split is many places and the top paste-on label is grubby with some loss
but still legible - it reads:-
THE NEW TABLE GAME of PING PONG or GOSSIMA Causing immense excitement and healthy exercise and is the nearest approach that can be to the Game of Lawn Tennis as played out of doors.
