A very rare and previously unrecorded small figure of a Victorian man playing Tennis or a racket sport. A standing sportsman wearing a tight buttoned shirt up to and including the collar, trousers and shoes, in his right hand he is holding a wooden racket that is clearly stringed, his left hand steadies the racket head. We have been fortunate to have had one other original Tennis player, slightly smaller in size and now in our archive section on our website. This is the only other original Staffordshire piece representing this sport we have ever seen in 30 years. Guaranteed to be in perfect original condition with no repairs, restoration or damage, c1860’s.
