84a – RARITÄT! Golfspieler/Golfball als Tischglocke, Bronze, Dunlop, wohl 50er Jahre
Höhe ca. 9,0 cm, guter, altersüblicher Zustand, normale Alters- und Gebrauchsspuren.

RARITY! Golfer/golf ball as a dinner bell, bronze, Dunlop, 1950s
Height 9.0 cm (3.6 in), good old common condition, normal age and wear.

Many metal bell collectors have one of these, or have at least seen it. The figure of a golf caddie was used to advertise Dunlop golf products. The seller believes it is from the 1950s, but this one dates back to c. 1920 and has the inscription “Dunlop 31” on front and rear. This original version is very hard to find and is almost never encountered. Copies were made in England after WW2 and have the inscription “Tubal Cain” on the rear of the golf ball. Later unmarked copies were made in the Orient and in the USA.
