Made by the Gutta Percha Co out of London, the Silver Town solid gutta percha ball debuted in 1895.  This particular example is in unused/mint condition with vibrant paint that still has a rich luster, and its name, stiill in its original red and black letters, is on only one pole.  Most Silver Town gutty balls were not made with their names filled with red and black paint.  A spectacular ball!

This ball is 4th row left in the group shot in the accompanying images.
