Advantage Ashe

Whilst I’m on the theme of glasses, I also spotted these lying around the office, “Advantage Ashe Tennis Glasses”. Linda Farrow are currently expanding their office space, and this involved the clearing out of a space which has been used solely for storage for the past few decades. These glasses appeared during part of the clear out. I am literally amazed at the condition they are in – box, tags, registration certificate – all pristine.

Arthur Ashe was a tennis player in the 1970s, and to date he is still the only African American man ever to win the singles at Wimbledon.  He retired from the sport in 1980 following heart surgery.
