This Left-handed 31 1/4" Rangefinder Bunny putter made by the Donaldson Manufacturing Company in Glasgow (c 1922-32) is in excellent condition! The head is clean and bright, with all lettering legible.

There are two main features on this club. The first is its identifiable symbol--a bunny leaping into a hole stamped onto the large brass plug on the sole of the club above the name "Bunny." The other unique feature is that the large brass plug goes all the way through the aluminum head from top to bottom, with a smaller brass rod that extends completely through the head, from the sweetspot on the face to the back. This creates contrasting large and small brass circles on all four sides of the aluminum head. 

Stamped on the shaft near the original leather-wrapped grip is "Rangefinder / Made in Scotland" and on the other side is the stamp of the seller, "John Little & Co. Ltd / Singapore" -- a former department store chain in Singapore founded in 1845.
