Antique Mahogany Golf Ball Display Cabinet.
A Victorian wall display cabinet with a display of 19 golf balls. The cabinet is with a single glazed door and a black background. The balls sit on individually turned ebonized wooden display stands. The glass door gives a clear view of each and every golf ball on display, whilst helping to protect the balls from dust and damage. The ninteen balls are sold with the cabinet and range from 1890's gutty ball to 1960's Dunlop 65. It is a good varied selection of gutta-percha, rubber core, mesh, bramble and dimple golf balls. A great little display cabinet made more versatile with the ability to alter the levels of the shelves with the brass supports.
