Golf Collectibles: Golden Age Golf Girl Adorns a Vintage Beauty Box

via Etsy, PowerofOneDesigns

Her style was undoubtedly inspired by Joyce Wethered or perhaps Glenna Collett Vare. From their cloche-style chapeaux to their form-fitting sweaters and skirts, they were the most fashionable... and talented... women golfers of their time.

Bending over a diminutive club, the tiny silver golfer appears to be engaged in a rather bizzarre pre-shot routine.

She stands on the carved silver lid of what they used to call a beauty box. In fact the shapely lady serves as a handle for this charming Art Deco compact.  It's a perfectly delightful collectible for the acquisitive golf historian.

  3. Joyce Wethered and Glenna Collett Vare were indeed talented golfers, but how our notions of beauty have changed.
