With a Test career spanning more than twenty years Colin Cowdrey is one of England's finest cricketing sons. From a precocious teenage phenomenon to one of the great sporting statesmen of his time, he was at the heart of the game for half a century: Cowdrey was the first man to play 100 Tests, captained England 27 times and scored almost 43,000 first-class runs – 7,624 of them in Test matches.

Vintage is delighted to offer this rare willow cricket bat by Slazenger of England. This mid-20th century antique cricket bat is in excellent condition with a lovely patina and would look wonderful framed or exhibited on a wall or shelf.
