Offered here is a highly impressive Orrefors decanter that was a gift to players at the 1979 Open Championship at Royal Lytham and St. Anne's. The decanter features an impressive scenes of The clubhouse at Royal Lytham and the Royal & Ancient clubhouse. Only 155 golfers competed in the 1979 Open, and we wonder how many of these decanters still exist (and in this condition!) nearly 40 years later. The decanter is in excellent condition, stands 11" tall.
