    1927 GOLF "TROPHY".

    Well, maybe not exactly a "trophy," but yet an enduring memento for "Second Place."  We have not a clue what the event was, except that it was a Handicap Tournament, held in 1927 and won by a duffer named Frank Orr.  (All these pertinents are fashionably detailed on the front of the piece.)  Essentially, it's a box made of heavy-gauge steel which, in turn, was silver plated to a high sheen.  Less the embellishing figures (golf ball and club), it measures about 4 1/2" x 3" x 1 3/4", and is crafted with heavy-duty hinges.  The wonderful virtue of this piece, aside from its splendid presence, is that it's functional.  (The first place trophy may have been a loving cup that only gathers cobwebs; this box, on the other hand, will comfortably hold cigarettes.)  It remains in utterly NM/MT condition.   Please note: Due to the size and/or weight of this lot, additional shipping costs may apply.
