Child’s Vintage Croquet Set


Child’s Croquet Set, American, prewar. Image is 1600px wide.


All ready to entertain four restless Depression Era youngsters, this is what a boxed set used to look like. The unadorned wooden case contains four simple mallets, four matching croquet balls, and two child-sized stakes. Who cares if the lack of embellishment foreshadowed wartime austerity to come. Just set up your wickets under the apple tree, and smile, smile, smile. Image is 1600px wide.
