Very Rare Badminton Racket, Birmal All Metal Racket.
An unusually rare find, a Birmal all metal Badminton racket made by the Birmingham Aluminium casting Co. The racket has an aluminium frame with original metal piano strings. The whipped handle has had some attention but does retain the original red and black cord and leather grip. The aluminium frame is marked 'Birmal, Taylor', Rd No. 700844, Pat No. 219536.
All in very good original condition, two lateral strings are broken, shuttlecock for display purposes only.

Birmingham Aluminium Casting (1903) Co. Ltd. (known as Birmal) grew out of the bicycle boom in the late 1890's. Aluminium was only just being recognised as a manufacturing material with Birmal being an early pioneer. By the late 1930's they supplied aluminium alloy to those who required it, especially the aircraft and automobile industries.
