This fabulous old water ski was made by French Company Schmitt a' Seyssinet in the 1970's.
It is called the 'Marina Doria' after a Swiss skier who travelled to the USA to train and became a champion of the sport throughout the 1950's and 60's. During this time she also married into royalty, becoming Princess of Naples!
There is some deterioration on the rubber components but no major cracks or splits. All the screws appear to be original.
It would look fabulous up on the wall.
Measures approx: 177cm long x 16cm wide
