Hand-stitched from 4 panels of full-grain leather, this vintage rugby ball is a handcrafted replica collector's item from the 1940s. Its authentic style will add an elegant touch to a stylish, old-school decor.
The post-war period saw the supremacy of clubs from the South-West of France in the French rugby league. It was also the era of Jean Prat, the emblematic striker for Rugby Club Lourdais and the XV de France, who won his first match with Les Bleus in Wales in 1948.
