This Victorian lady golfer made in real bronze is a charming piece with superb finishing and great details. The traditional dark patinated finish adds to its nostalgic interest. Right down to the full-length skirt in the fashions of the time, this original, hand-crafted piece captures those bygone days beautifully. From the ribboned boater, to the styling of the hair, the elegant face, and the flowing skirt and pointy shoes, the detail is immense. Also notable are the puffed sleeves, ruffled cuffs, finely carved hands, belt and box-pleated basque. It is no wonder that she is so popular and so well received. This classic figure makes a great prize or gift for any golfer and is sure to be much loved for years to come. Great as a Lady Captain's prize for instance as well as any trophy of class, this figure is mounted on a Lakeland green slate base and up to 65 characters of engraving are included in the price of the trophy. Also available on a twin mount of slate plus mahogany - see figure S59PT. The dark patination - like that on the Lions of London's Trafalgar Square - is a perfect finish for a figure from this era and has the advantage of never having to be polished. Just a little dusting. This piece, is exclusive to Thomas & Peters. It is a fine example of how a sculptor translates a picture in her mind into a reality. The Victorian lady was originally carved in wax - instead of being sculpted in the usual clay - which gives the casting the smoothest possible finish which can be polished into a rich mirror shine. In the patinated version it results in a wonderfully warm glow. This superbly-finished bronze piece is handmade individually through our registered float bronze process, as are all our trophies and figures. These distinctive pieces will have enduring appeal in any club or home. It will offer years of pleasure as a gift or trophy.
