Exhibition Clubs

Posted on Monday, April 25th, 2022 by John Wood
A shot of some unknown gymnast or circus performer along with a set of his (likely custom) exhibition clubs.

Not sure where this gent got his clubs but Spalding had a commercially available set of exhibition clubs, circa the early 1900’s (bottom). These clubs had strips of German silver (a shiny but very light alloy) along the sides. When swung under stage lights, the reflections made for a very dramatic show!
