Ball Tail Tennis Racket, George Gibson Bussey
A fine and rare example of a ball tail lawn tennis racket by Bussey 'The Tournament 3'. A nice 'Light' ash framed racket with convex wedge. The wedge is embossed in gilt 'The Tournament ' with the Bussey logo 'GEO.G.BUSSEY&Co.' at the top of the handle. The racket has a good straight frame with the original shoulder whipping and the unusual ball tail handle.
