Stamped "Martin's England" on one pole and "Zodiac Patents" on the other, this Martins-Birmingham Ltd Zodiac ball strikes a strong pose with its round studs! A writer in the November 1927 Morning Post described it as follows, "Unless I am mistaken, the Zodiac was the first ball made with a centre, a bag of viscous fluid, which was heavily weighted with white lead or something of the kind."

Condition as shown in the images.

This ball is shown to the far left in the 2nd from the top row in the accompanying group image.
