It's not very often you find a set of vintage R.H. Macy's skis with original labels. They were made by Harvey E. Dodds "The Ski People" for the famous and first Macy store at Herald Square in New York City. R.H. Macy products typically were branded with a star logo fashioned after Mr. Rowland Hussey Macy's own tattoo he received while working on a Nantucket whaling ship. These skis feature pointed tips, original labels and replaced leather foot strap bindings with a unique "H 6 1/8" stamped into the ski. The R.H. Macy's logo is also stamped into the back of the ski tip. This is a very pretty ski with a tapered wooden design on the ski. A wonderful set of skis to add to your collection or hang on your wall. They have been preserved with our natural oil and beeswax finish.
