Offered here is a stunning heavy bronze paperweight depicting the great Harry Vardon. As you can see, only 4 of Vardon's eventual 6 Open Championship victories are stamped into the piece, meaning that it was produced before Vardon's 5th Open victory in 1911. Sure enough, a review of the registration number on the bottom right corner dates this piece to 1906. 

This historic piece is believed to have been owned by Harry Vardon himself, though no supporting documentation is provided. It measures 3 1/8" x 4 7/8", and is 5/16" thick.
