Antique "BARREL STAVE" Skis (Unrestored)
These stave skis are fashioned from an old oak Swiss wine barrel. Pieces of rubber and short wood slats are used as a binding. The bases were smoothed down and you can still see and feel some of the old wax which remains. Skiing on barrel staves goes back to the 1800's and still today, competitions are organized in Switzerland and throughout the world.
