Marked "Spalding Bramble" on both poles inside a large ring, this ball is made from solid gutta percha.  It dates right around 1900 or shortly thereafter. Spalding continued to offer gutty balls for a few years after the rubber-core Haskell was introduced in 1899.

This particular ball was used and has a few crease marks.  Even so, it still retains most of its paint and looks good. In excellent condition.

This ball is top row, middle in the accompanying group image.
