Vintage F. H. Ayres Croquet Set On Original Stand.
A fantastic F. H. Ayres croquet set on an old original F. H. Ayres mahogany stand. The set is with four boxwood croquet mallets with ebony guide lines on the top of the mallet head. All mallets are with octagonal ash handles with strung grips. To complete the set there are four composite balls in the standard croquet colours, six bent metal hoops and two new posts with coloured bands; the colour sequence indicating the order of play. The set comes on an original 'Usborne' croquet carrier stand patented by F. H. Ayres of London that will take all but the hoops. The top with painted gold decal ' The 'Usborne' croquet carrier stand (patent) F. H. Ayres, London'. The stand makes it easier to transport the set out to the lawn, but also looks very attractive standing in the hall.

The size stated is for the stand, the mallets are 33 inches in length.

The set is photographed with the bent metal hoops, there are other images of a set of six cast iron Davidson hoops with hole former. We can swap the cast iron hoops with the bent metal hoops at an extra cost of £200, please state if you wish to have the cast iron hoops.
