Kinnoull Recreation Club
Presented by Henry Coates, Esq. 1899

Kinnoull Recreation Club is still a tennis club in Perthshire, Scotland (now called Kinnoull Tennis Club). The “Kinnoull Recreation Club” was founded in 1887 and encompassed Tennis, Bowling and Curling. Over the years, curling disappeared and the bowling and tennis sections separated to form their own respective clubs.

Excellent antique condition, just some small signs of age and use, a few clusters of small flea bites to the glass and some light marks to the sterling collar. Full hallmarks for Sterling Silver, assayed in Birmingham in 1898.

Measures a bit over 3.5” tall by 3.5” wide, weighs nearly 2 pounds!
