Antique Croquet Set In Case/ Wooden Box. Name has worn off on outside of box. Apologies for delay in description.
Set has been tucked away for a long time. Just in case you need to know any more details etc! Please ask for any more photographs as only allowed 12.Lovely old long original box with brass ring hooks and swing hooks. Three wooden balls with damage on two! Obvious signs of use and damage. One has been repaired on the handle with brass to strengthen. The mallets come off of the sticks. Ten metal hoops which push into the ground. Box has sections inside to hold the game parts. Long wooden box with black metal to once again strengthen. Black iron handles for carrying either end. I can see the box has suffered wood worm also the mallets. Woodworm has been in the mallet which has been repaired also part of handle which goes into the brass. The mallets have suffered obvious cracks and damage through use and age! Red handled mallet has pieces of wood missing and a long crack where the handle joins onto wood.
Yellow one has lumps of wood missing from mallet. Plain one doesnt have much damage on the mallet. Green one has chunks of wood missing and cracks. The others seem to be okay!The mallets possibly need attention and the handles have come loose from the mallet over the years! I dont believe the worm is active!
