Japanese retro-future bronze stupa with golfer 1936

Actually a unique Japanese bronze golf trophy signed “C. C. C (Former abbreviation of Takarazuka Golf Club?) / New year’s cup 1936 at TAKARAZUKA” and “Made by ???” at bottom. Additionally in fact, 1936 (Showa 11) was the peak year of golf-enthusiasm in the prewar time in Japan, though only among limited upper class, as a symbol of wealth and power. Some stains and patina as seen. approx. H 24cm (9.44in), D 16.5cm (6.49in)
