A very rare small Dunlop 65 Caddie point of sale figurine
Complete with bag strap and plinth. Only the third one to come to auction within the last 10 years.
12½ inches high

There are two types of Dunlop Caddie, each with a head resembling a round dimpled golf ball. Both figures wear a cap and a scarf and rolled-up trousers, and both carry a bag with two irons and four woods. The more common figurine measures 15 -16 inches in height. This measurement includes its green canted rectangular wooden base on which is inscribed: We Play Dunlop. The rarer type is considerably smaller at 12½ inches high and bears the slogan: We Play Dunlop '65'. The Dunlop 65 golf ball took its name from Henry Cotton's famous 65 at Royal George's in the second round of the1934 Open. As well as being shorter, this Dunlop Caddie has 'Dunlop 65' on the back of his head. The small sized Dunlop Caddie is the second rarest of all the point of sales figurines.
