Description

A fun set of original Swiss skis, trade marked Jika Sports Neuchatel.
A combination cross country and downhill , as commonly used around the 1920ies to 1950ies.
This pair also has a signature of sort on the foot bed, 'Lillywhites' which might refer to a sports personality of the day, I haven't found any references though.
Thanks to two comments via Selling Antiques, we now know that :
the skis were probably made in Switzerland for sale in London at Lillywhites, Regent St, Piccadilly Circus a Victorian sports emporium that opened in 1925 probably by Fred Lillywhite. It's still there but owned by one of the sports chains now
thank you for your info...
The skis are in good order, all the mechanics seem to be present, but sorry no poles.
A good waxing and off you go...
Dimensions:
79" high
3 1/2" wide
Internal Ref: MISC010
