This charming pair of Turner Wall Accessories is meta-vintage, the 1960’s version of nostalgia. It shows two outdoor leisure sports, tennis and croquet, in about 1900, both played on grass and in just a whole lot of clothing. “Come now, my dearest, put on your corset and your bustle and your petticoats and your long skirt and your long-sleeved cinched-waist jacket and your matching bonnet and let’s go relax with some sporting activities, shall we?"
It is interesting to note that there is about the same distance between 1900 and 1960 as there is between now and 1960. You likely have some sense of the 1960s, and perhaps even lived through them; the original audience for these felt the same about the days of full-dress outdoor sports!
Prints behind glass, with ornate wooden frames, this pair shows a bit of age but is in very nice condition. There is a small orange stain on the glass of the tennis one; it is barely noticeable in person, and it is not on the print itself.
