Vintage F. H. Ayres Croquet Set.
A good F. H. Ayres croquet set on an old original F. H. Ayres oak 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 coloured cloth grips. To complete the set there are four composite balls in the standard croquet colours, six cast iron Davidson hoops with hole former and two old posts with coloured bands; the colour sequence indicating the order of play. The set comes on an original 'Usborne' croquet carrie stand patented by F. H. Ayres of London that will take all but the hoops and posts.
The stand makes it easier to transport the set out to the lawn, but also looks very attractive standing in the hall.
The mallets have had chips in them which have been filled.
