Tennis Racket Napkin Ring c1900

An unusual Napkin Ring with extended edges, attached is a large period racket and ball. The racket has convex wedge with a raised throat piece, the ball has a detailed seam running around its circumference. The ring measures 4cms in height and 4.5cms across the base. The racket is 8.5cms in length. I believe this to be plate and not base metal as you can see tiny areas of the base copper colour to the string edges, though I cannot be sure. The condition is good/fair, the edges of the ring are rough in places, there is some deterioration inside the ring. All said a rarity and a nice lawn tennis collectable.
