Thanks for the help!

I'm thinking it's too round for Rugby.

From some quick internet looking, Soccer balls seem to have been sewn like that in the 1890's and a bit past that.

But basketballs also looked like that.


Any clues from the mount it's on? Or an object in the photo with a known size?

A quick search of 1890's Soccer balls shows that the ball shown in your picture is a goodyear soccer ball. At first look the ball resembles a basketball. which makes sense because the first basketball games were played with soccer balls.
