Historic 1871 from Royal Liverpool Golf Club. Surely one of the earliest Royal Liverpool trophies in private hands. The club was formed in 1869, and its 18 hole golf course debuted in 1871. That same year the club received its "Royal" designation.

This trophy tankard is from that exact same year that the course opened and the Royal designation was received. Ornate sterling silver tankard, hallmarked Birmingham 1867. Engraved with tournament winner "Robert B. Forman" on August 7, 1871. 6 1/2" tall, excellent condition.
