Description

Cricket – Robert St Leger Fowler - c.1900s Gunn & Moore Cricket Bat ‘The Cannon’ Model originally used by Fowler when representing the Army. The vendor’s grandfather served in the Lancers with Fowler and obtained the bat during the 1920s. Fowler (1891-1925) was an Irish first-class cricketer, often regarded as the best Irish cricketer not to have represented Ireland. He is perhaps known for his outstanding all round performance as Captain of Eton College in the match against Harrow in 1910, the match commonly referred to as ‘Fowler’s Match’. The bat appears used with tape to the bottom of the blade and small chips and cracks to the edge, grip and handle appear good
